Phytobiomes Journal editor-in-chief Carolyn Young has announced the winners of the Phytobiomes Poster Prizes. These awards were bestowed to grad students and postdocs in the emerging field of phytobiomes and presented on behalf of the Noble Research Institute and the American Phytopathological Society.
“It's a real pleasure to talk to the students and postdocs about their phytobiomes related research," Young said. “This is the generation of scientists who will advance our phytobiomes knowledge beyond what we ever thought was possible."
Congratulations to the winners, who showcased their posters at Plant Health 2019!
