Research Description

Data containing microbial communities from commercial potato fields varying in diversity and composition have been collected across two independent sets of communities. In this research, statistical and machine learning analyses will be applied in order to assess the ability of soil containing various bacterial communities to increase crop yield in both low and high nutrient condition and to resist a soil-borne pathogen.
