The Plant–Microbe Interface: An NSF-REU Summer Undergraduate Research Program
The Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology at Texas A&M University offers an opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in a 10-week intensive research program during the summer.
Students will pursue independent research projects that tackle contemporary challenges that can be addressed by a better understanding of the plant-microbe interface. These challenges include the development of next generation biofuels, strategies to ensure the integrity and safety of the global food and fiber supply, and approaches for enhancing agricultural sustainability.
