SHANK LAB PUBNOBACKGROUND.jpg

Expanding Molecular Coverage in Mass Spectrometry Imaging of Microbial Systems Using Metal-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization

Lukowski JK, Bhattacharjee A, Yannarell SM, Schwarz K, Shor LM, Shank EA, Anderton CR. (2021). Expanding Molecular Coverage in Mass Spectrometry Imaging of Microbial Systems Using Metal-Assisted LaserDesorption/Ionization. Spectrum Vol 9, Number 1.  


A new study shows that transparent soil substitutes can be used to replicate the interactions of bacteria and fungi in soil, opening up a new approach to learning how soil microbes contribute to a healthy ecosystem. Elizabeth Shank, PhD, associate professor of microbiology & physiological systems and senior author on the study, describes how using two transparent soil substitutes allowed scientists to follow how soil bacteria rely on fungi to help them survive extended dry periods.
