NorthenLab: Exometabolomics linking genomes with environments to understand how webs of microbes sustain biomes

Trent Northen interviewed on Finding Genius podcast

Trent Northen was recently interviewed by Richard Jacobs, host of the Finding Genius podcast, in a conversation titled “Living Earth: Studying the Microbial Community in Soil.” The Finding Genius podcast highlights experts conducting novel and exciting research in health, medicine, and biosciences topics.

In the interview, he discusses his research investigating metabolites and their effects on microbial communities, soils, and plants. In addition to describing ongoing initiatives, Trent Northen discusses some of the ramifications of his research, including plant growth in nutrient-poor soils and carbon restoration in soils, emphasizing the role of the Northen Lab in understanding microbial interactions, plant growth, and sustainable agriculture.

The full interview is available on the Finding Genius website, which includes links to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other listening platforms.
