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!
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.
