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.

Congratulations to Paula Dalcin-Martin on her ISME student travel award!
We also found some time to explore Montreal and celebrate a productive summer!

We went on an awesome food tour in Mile End.
Climbed up Mount Royale.

Rumen fluid samples have arrived from the second round of moose seasonal trials! Time for TJ and Lindsey to start processing!
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!
Lindsey spent the week in Wooster at OARDC learning from the experts how to do Fluorescent in situ hybridization on her moose rumen samples. Many thanks to Tea Meulia and her lab for all of their help!
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!
To enrich for moose rumen microbes, Lindsey makes her media with clarified (sterilized) rumen fluid from OARDC research cows. Another exciting sampling opportunity!
