Welcome to the Salt Institute!

Huddled in parkas during yet another frigid Minnesota winter, one question plagued a group of student scientists:  How do insects manage to survive these crazy winters? Guided by our fearless leader, Dr. Rob Venette, we began a journal club and began digging into the scientific literature for answers.  Now that we are well-versed in the literature, many of us have begun our own cold hardiness research and want to share what we’ve learned.  We hope to use this site as a way to share this knowledge, our research, outreach publications, and try to answer some common questions.
