    I am spending a year and a half in Senegal, West Africa as part of a team of four graduate students from The Ohio State University and the University of California, Merced characterizing the overall diversity and ability of the soil microbiology within the rooting zone of the Sahelian shrub Guiera senegalensis to alleviate drought stress and enhance the growth of millet. We use metagenomic techniques, arbuscular mycorrhizal microscopy, soil enzymology, PLFA analysis, genetics, hydrology, and stable isotopes coupled to plant morphological, nutrient and physiological analyses in greenhouse and field studies in order to understand the soil microbiological basis for enhanced millet growth in this shrub-crop agroecosystem.
