Evaluation of non-pathogenic bat skin microbes for antagonistic activity to Geomyces destructans Progress Report

2010 research progress report for evaluation of non-pathogenic bat skin microbes for antagonistic activity to Geomyces destructans from Sybill Amelon, U. S. Forest Service and Guy Knudsen, University of Idaho.

The focus of this research is to obtain representative isolates of skin bacteria and fungi from selected bat species, to screen them for antagonistic activity towards Geomyces destructans, and ultimately to test the most promising antagonists as potential biological control agents for white-nose syndrome.
