Dr. Michael Schläppi has received a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for genetics research in an effort to grow rice in cold climates like Wisconsin.
Schläppi, a geneticist and molecular biologist, is developing an experimental cold-resistant strain of rice. His team successfully grew different rice varieties in four southeastern Wisconsin locations this year, including atop the Wehr Life Sciences Building.
The Department of Biological Sciences is pleased to announce the Spring 2016 schedule for our Scholl Seminar series. All seminars will be presented on Friday afternoons at 3:00pm in Wehr Life Sciences room 111, unless otherwise noted.
