"Fusarium graminearum ecology at the intersection of wheat and wild grass communities" - Michael Fulcher

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 12:20pm

Plant Science Building, 404

Michael Fulcher 

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology Section, Cornell University

Michael Fulcher is a graduate student in the Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology Section of the School of Integrative Plant Science. He is part of the American Phytopathological Society, as well as the Ecological Society of America and Mycological Society of America. 

Research Focus

My interests are in population biology, ecology, and the control of disease under diverse farm management regimes. The bulk of my work in the Bergstrom Lab centers around Fusarium graminearum, the fungal pathogen that causes Scab in small grains.

Current projects include:

  • A population genetics study examining genetic diversity in agricultural and non-agricultural spaces across multiple host species
  • Probing for the genetic basis of triazole fungicide resistance
  • Evaluating disease pressure in field crops grown conventionally and organically
