Brucker Lab Awarded 2017 Milton Fund
The Brucker lab has been awarded this year’s Milton Fund to study the impact of agrochemicals on honeybee microbiomes. This work will bring a better understanding to the the function of the millions of bacteria that live in animals guts and their ability to detoxify xenobiotic chemicals. Local beekeeping organizations have volunteered to participate in this study of microbiomes in their hives to better understand bee health.
