The survival secrets of Antarctic black fungi
Black fungi are microscopic and mighty. They survive everywhere from Antarctica to Joshua Tree National Park, despite extremely harsh conditions — and their survival secrets could one day help other organisms survive hotter, drier climates. So University of Tuscia researchers Laura Selbmann and Claudia Coleine are working with scientists from around the world — and the JGI — to understand them better. Check out the latest episode of Genome Insider to learn more!
JGI@25: Strengthening Soybean

Recently, we caught up with Gary Stacey of University of Missouri, Sebastien Duplessis of INRAE and Peter van Esse of the Sainsbury Laboratory to discuss the impact of the original soybean genome on fighting Asian Soybean Rust. Learn more on our website!
