Faculty Friday Feature: Margot Becktell, PhD

Every Friday the CMUnow Special Edition podcast features outstanding faculty on the Colorado Mesa University and Western Colorado Community College campuses. This week cohosts Kelsey Coleman and David Ludlam talk with plant pathologist and Colorado Mesa University Associate Professor of Biology Margot Becktell, PhD, about her research on the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine, the hidden warrior traits of the petunia and, what Becktell calls, her “flesh eating fungi project.”
