Jagdale et al. conducted the first systematic survey of plant-parasitic nematodes (PPNs) on muscadine grapes in Georgia and North Carolina vineyards and discovered seven PPNs associated with muscadines in both states. They also found that the PPN communities differed between the two states, suggesting the possibility that vineyard management strategies may also differ.

The highly conserved CBM18-containing fungal effector, VnaChtBP, is upregulated during infection of susceptible hosts. Interestingly, VnaChtBP lacks LysM domains but binds chitin and blocks the host ROS chitin response in cultured cells while protecting fungi from host chitinases—a fascinating example of convergent evolution by Volk and colleagues.

"APS keeps you connected. It was being at the APS meeting that showed me what I could become. I care about APS Foundation because they first cared about me. If I could talk to my younger self, I would tell her volunteer to work for foundation. The foundation booth at the annual meeting is the best place to be. Where else can a first-year student sit down with the president of the society, a leading author, or the top person in your field and talk for 2 hours about your science or career tips? If you donate time, you get so much more back."
