"Beetlejuice! studying gut yeasts of mushroom-eating beetles around the world."
Our speaker for February is Meredith Blackwell, a professor of mycology at Louisiana State University. Meredith will start out the new year by talking about Beetlebelly yeasts (in the photo above you can see Meredith looking at a mushroom for the beetles that may have yeasts in their gut).
