Seanna’s lab works on discovering basic information about fungal pathogens of wild blueberries for developing improvements in control of the diseases they cause. They determine which methods or materials improved disease control in the field in collaboration with blueberry growers. Seanna also collaborates with other scientists on fungi involved in food and feed and identifies fungi for the public.
