AIS Area of Interest
Dr. Sadowsky's research focuses on microbial ecology, genomics, environmental microbiology, and host-microbe interactions. His work with MAISRC includes:
- Characterizing the total microbial community structures associated with zebra mussels, quagga mussels, and Eurasian watermilfoil
- Determining if they contain any potential biocontrol agents for managing these species
