CIBER would like to give a special congratulations to Dylan Lynch for a successful thesis defense!
Dylan’s primary research focus was common bean. Common Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is one of the most important food legumes for human consumption. They are faced with abiotic factors of salinity and biotic factors of fungal root pathogens that both lower production worldwide. We aimed to find out how salinity influences the growth of these root rot pathogens and then apply these factors under a combined stress evaluation on the whole bean plants.

- How simultaneous abiotic and biotic factors influence disease severity on common bean
A Tip of the Hat to Our 1890 LGUs Celebrating 127 Years of Cutting Edge Science, Education, Community Service
by Sonny Ramaswamy, NIFA Director
The author of the Act that created land-grant colleges, Congressman Justin Smith Morrill of Strafford, Vermont, had been disappointed that such educational institutions were out of reach for African-Americans. Almost 30 years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act of 1862, the Second Morrill Act, creating our nation’s historically black land-grant colleges, was successfully shepherded through Congress by then Senator Morrill and signed into law Aug. 30, 1890.
After 127 years of experience and diversity in agricultural research, education, and extension, our 1890 LGUs are poised to develop leadership and human capital for our nation’s preeminence in the 21st century. That is not a bad legacy for the seminal ideas Justin Smith Morrill articulated in the 19th century.
