Colloquium: Bernal returns to CSUN to explain how bacteria burrow into tomatoes

Dr. Eduardo Bernal

This week the Biology Colloquium seminar series features Eduardo Bernal, a CSUN alumnus and now a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Plant Pathology at the Ohio State University. Dr. Bernal will discuss his doctoral research on a group of bacterial species that infect cultivated tomatoes, causing a "spot disease" that damages fruits. His seminar, presented with support of MARC and the Bridges to the Doctorate program, will be entitled "Development of tomatoes with resistance to Xanthomonas species and the use of genetic resources to characterize infection and diversity in pathogen populations."

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation on Friday at 2pm via this meeting link, with passcode Biology490. (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
