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!
Melanie De LaRosa, a summer intern from Puerto Rico in the Wrighton lab showcases her research at the undergraduate OSU SROP meeting. She isolated Archaea adapted to high saline conditions in Lake Retba (lake rose, for it’s pink color caused by the microbes) in Senegal, Africa. Many thanks to Prof. John Reeve, Prof. Chuck Daniels (both in the OSU Micro department), and SROP (http://www.gradsch.ohio-state.edu/summer-research-opportunities-program.html) for their support.
