MU sophomore Josh Hendren cuts up a white grub specimen in the MU entomology department in the Agricultural Building on Tuesday. Hendren will then put the specimen through a series of tests in order to sequence the white grub's DNA to add to the database. "Farmers in the field can't identify what beetle may be affecting their crop so they send them to use to identify," Hendren said.
