Ag 450 Farm

The AgEdS450 Farm is the ONLY completely student managed farm at a land grant university in the United States. The AgEdS 450 Farm allows students to be involved in everyday management decisions and practices of a typical central Iowa farm. This is a capstone course for Agricultural Studies Majors.

AgDiscovery

Iowa's AgDiscovery program helps teenagers learn about careers in Veterinary Medicine, Animal Science, Laboratory Technology and Wildlife Ecology. Students live on the Iowa State University campus and learn from university professors, scientists who work for the U.S. government, and local agricultural producers and animal welfare and management organizations.

Ambrosia Fungi - Harrington Lab

Ambrosia fungi are a diverse group of species associated with ambrosia beetles, insects that rely on fungal agriculture to survive. They are currently known to be in two major groups: Raffaelea in the Ophiostomatales, and several genera within the Microascales, including Ambrosiella, Meredithiella, and Phialophoropsis in the Ceratocystidaceae and Fusarium. This site aims to be a source of information for all known species in both genera as well as a resource for methods for the successful isolation and identification of these fungi from beetle specimens.

The Baum Lab

Research in the Baum lab focuses on the compatible interaction between cyst nematodes and their hosts with particular emphasis on the soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) and the sugar beet cyst nematode (H. schachtii). To a smaller extent, some projects are dealing with the root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne spp. This group of so-called sedentary endoparasitic phytonematodes represents the most damaging group of plant-parasitic nematode and is responsible for billions of annual losses.

Biology Program

Iowa State University is a major center for research and education in the biological sciences. Students have the opportunity to learn from some of the nation’s leaders in biological research and teaching and to participate in innovative, meaningful research projects that explore frontiers of biology. Few other universities have such a wealth of faculty expertise available to undergraduate students.

Biology Information Technology (BIT)

Biology IT is a collaborative effort of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. We work with faculty, staff and graduate students in the biological sciences to ensure that their computing experience is fast, stable and secure. We provide system support, backup, software licensing, research IT consulting and access to high-performance computers.
