ISU researchers are developing a new facility that will use a specially designed robot to gather unprecedented amounts of data on the growth of plants under different environmental conditions. Steven Whitham, plant pathology and microbiology, is the primary investigator. Stephen Howell, genetics, development and cell biology, and Lie Tang, agricultural and biosystems engineering, are collaborating.
XB Yang was invited by Brazilian Phytopathological Society to address at the opening session of their 47th Congress which was held in August 16-21 in Londrina, Brazil. Title of his talk was "Future Impact of a globalized economy on Plant Pathology in North and South America". Dr. Yang also gave a plenary speech at opening session of 10th International Congress of Plant Pathology last year, in which he addressed how globalized economy would shape our profession for countries with different levels of economic development.

Plant Disease and Insect Diagnostic Clinic
The Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic provides diagnosis of plant problems (plant diseases, insect damage, and assessment of herbicide damage) and the identification of insects and weeds from the field, garden, and home. The PIDC is a joint effort between Iowa State University Extension Plant Pathology, Entomology, Horticulture, and Agronomy.
