How will the extinction of ash trees affect our ecosystem? An #MSU researcher recently led a study on the invasive species destroying these trees: the emerald ash borer.
The emerald ash borer is devastating trees from Minnesota to New York, and there is little scientists can do but study what effect the trees’ extinction will have on the ecosystem.

A new genetic study of electric eels, which was co-led by #MSU researchers, has revealed the surprising way they got electrified. #SpartansWill
Unrelated lineages of electric fish all use the same small set of genes to create their voltage, a genetic search shows. Maybe the same genes could one day power pacemakers, bioengineers suggest.
