ISME 2016

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.
