We celebrated fall birthdays and our cucurbit research by carving pumpkins.



Our new equipment is up and running! The Helms lab and our collaborators are working on a variety of projects analyzing VOCs, CHCs, sugars, amino acids, plant defense compounds, and a whole lot more.



Anjel joined the faculty in the Texas A&M Ecology and Evolutionary Biology PhD program and was invited to present an EEB seminar “Chemical cues linked to risk: eavesdropping by plants and insect herbivores”.



Congratulations to John Grunseich who graduated  from Texas A&M in December with degrees in Entomology and Crop and Soil Science! John was recently accepted into the Entomology Graduate Program and will be sticking around in the Helms Lab as a master’s student.
