We had a successful trip to the International Society for Microbial Ecology (ISME) Meeting this year. Here are some pics from our trip!
Kelly and first year graduate student, Kayla gave fantastic talks.
Also Kelly was the third most mentioned person during her talk on moose at ISME! Check out the statistics by Keith Turner and check him out on Twitter.
Graduate students at their posters (left to right: Jordan Angle, Robert Danczak, Paula Dalcin-Martin, Anne Brooker, Lindsey Solden):
Congratulations to Paula Dalcin-Martin on her ISME student travel award!
We also found some time to explore Montreal and celebrate a productive summer!
Lab Dinner at Bouillon Bilk
We went on an awesome food tour in Mile End.
Climbed up Mount Royale.

Our students are representing Ohio State and our team at the Joint Genome Institute’s Microbial Genomics and Metagenomics Workshop. OH!
Lindsey and Kelly headed to Granby, Colorado this week to attend the 49th North American Moose Conference (aka Moose Fest). Lindsey illuminated the moose world with microbiome research, met with collaborators and made new ones. It was a great trip!
Jordan cores through the ice today at Old Woman Creek to better understand the seasonal impacts on methane cycling in wetland sediments. Coldest day of winter: Check!
The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months—with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.
The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory during the award period.
Applications are due 5:00pm ET on Tuesday April 14, 2015.
Christina Mccullough, a third year Ohio State Veterinary student is visiting the Wrighton lab this week to do DNA extractions on rumen fluid and feces from her study on moose at the Columbus Zoo. We’re happy to have you, Christina!
Now that Fall semester is almost over, it’s time to start thinking about summer plans! The Marine Biology Laboratory has many hands on laboratory courses to strengthen your lab hands, meet the leading scientists in the field and gain a deeper understanding of the techniques available for your project. They have many courses available for undergraduates and graduate students interested in many fields- from neuroscience, environmental science to host-microbe interactions. Application deadlines are coming up so check it out soon!
