Getting to Know Frances Trail:

Fascinated by fungi, a passion she discovered as a sophomore in college when she had to memorize the life cycle of the wheat rust for her Botany class. Since then she has focused primarily of fungi of agricultural importance, trying to understand their basic biology and turning that into new ideas to control fungi causing diseases of agricultural crops.
