Congratulations to Dr. Chris Madden, 2 time MVPoop Winner!

Dr. Chris Madden received the 2020 MVPoop award. The award was given by David Minich (the 2019 MVPoop winner).  David said of Dr. Madden, “He was a tremendous help organizing the samples and extracting most of the swabs before I arrived last summer, he helped me a ton with QIIME, spent a ton of time troubleshooting and teaching me PCR techniques as we attempted to identify the C. perfringens, and overall has done a ton of work for the lab organizing the sequencing data for both Columbus Zoo and the Denver Zoo.”  Congratulations and thank you for all of hard work and team work Dr. Madden!
