Many thanks to all of our collaborators and our funding sources.
It was a beautiful Fall weekend to sample soil cores at the Wetland last week! Kelly and Jordan took our rotation student Lennel Camuy-Vélez to take soil samples, measure dissolved oxygen, and set up an experiment to measure methane production potential. Lennel will be with us for the next 8 weeks measuring methane and analyzing genomes and transcripts from the Wetland – and hopefully taking some more great pictures!
Many thanks to The Department of Energy Early Career Research Program
for support and funding this year!
Project title: Genomes to ecosystem function: Targeting critical knowledge gaps in methanogenesis and translation to updated global biogeochemical models
Also, Congratulations to the many other Early Career Award recipients!
Congratulations to our students on winning travel awards and outstanding abstract awards! Make sure you check out their talks/posters found on our conferences page
