New Grant from CDFA

by BRADLEY WHITE


We recently received notice of award for a grant to study the molecular and genetic mechanisms of insecticide resistance in the glassy-winged sharpshooter, which transmits the bacteria that causes Pierce's disease in grapevines. It is a collaboration with two other professors (Frank Byrne and Rick Redak) in the Entomology department. We are currently searching for a postdoc to lead the project.
