Nematology

Nematodes, or roundworms, live in practically all habitats. They influence soil fertility, food safety, and other aspects of animal or plant health. They are also valuable model organisms in biological research. Thus, it is important to learn about these often overlooked, but widespread and abundant animals.

The Nematology minor supports careers in plant and agricultural nematology, and provides valuable information for careers in animal, plant and soil health.
