Dr. John W Doudna

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Dr. Doudna studied the distribution of Bt-resistant western corn rootworm (WCR) (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera) throughout Iowa, and how the evolution and spread of resistance are impacted by field management and landscape characteristics. He sampled sites throughout Iowa and used GIS to evaluate landscape and management parameters associated with the presence of resistance.
