Current Research
I am involved in numerous research studies. My projects include collecting and isolating 10,000/12,000 Armillaria rhizomorph, bark-fan, rotten-wood, cap-tissue and single-spore samples from over 400 plots all over the western USA (over 17 years) in a huge study to help predict and manage this root-rot disease. My involements also include obtaining PCR-product from over 800 Armillaria isolates and editing over 1400 molecular-DNA-sequences thereof (over 6 years) adding this new technique providing crucial evidence into many parts of a huge study.
