Dr. Jonathan Lynch, Post-doc Chris Black, and Ph.D. student Ernst Schafer presented recent modeling work at SEB Seville 2019

At the Society for Experimental Biology 2019 Meeting in Seville, Spain, Dr. Jonathan Lynch, Post-doc Christopher Black, and Ph.D student Ernst Schafer presented recent root simulation modeling results.

Dr. Lynch presented a talk titled, "ROOTS FOR THE 10B: MODELING PHENES AND PHENOTYPES FOR SOIL RESOURCE CAPTURE".

Post-doc Chris Black presented a talk titled, "ADD GRIT FOR TRACTION: REPRESENTATION OF SOIL STRUCTURE IMPROVES FIT OF A ROOT GROWTH MODEL".

Ernst Schafer presented a talk titled, "STUDYING THE EFFECTS OF ROOT SENESCENCE ON CROP FITNESS AND SOIL NUTRIENT CAPTURE IN SILICO".
