Chestnut Chat Series: Hypovirulence and BioControl
January 15 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Learn about the underlying biology of the blight fungus and what’s being done to make it sick using a virus. Amy Metheny of West Virginia University will give us a crash course on the causal organism of chestnut blight, Cryphonectria parasitica, as well as the phenomenon known as hypovirluence, wherein the fungus is infected by a virus.
