Join us to the UCI Student Center next Saturday, May 18th, for the UROP Symposium.
Jeannie’s presentation is scheduled for Oral Session I at 9:10am in the Doheny Beach D of the UCI Student Center. The title of her talk is 'Temporal Variability in Oceanic Nutrient Ratios along the Southern California Coast'.
Rika is going to present her poster 'Stoichiometrical Variability within Phyla of Soil Bacteria' between 1:30pm and 2:50pm.
Sara, a former undergraduate student in our lab will be joining Dr. Regan's lab at UC Riverside as a PhD student next fall in the department of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology. She also received a Chancellor's fellowship for her PhD. Please join me in congratulating Sara!
What an amazing month!!! Cecilia got a BioSci dissertation fellowship, Alyssa Kent got a NSF graduate fellowship, and Nathan Garcia got a UCI Advance post doctoral fellowship and will likely join the lab this summer.
You may remember that Nathan visited last year and gave a whiteboard presentation about co-limitation of phytoplankton.
A big congratulations to Renaud for getting his paper about the phylogenetic distribution of glycoside hydrolases accepted in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. The paper is very nice and I encourage you to check it out.
There will soon be two other studies using this approach coming out. This includes Amy's paper about the phylogenetic distribution of extracellular enzyme traits (ISME J.) and Reanud's paper about glycoside hydrolases (in AEM). You should check out all the papers.
Cecilia will be giving a talk November 29th at University of Texas, Austin for a graduate level course on 'Advanced Topics in Microbial Ecology' taught by Dr. Christina Hawkes. She will discuss next-generation sequencing and its applications to microbial ecology, particularly using her research as a case study.
Anthony Amend's paper describing the variation in plankton diversity and species range is now out in Journal of Biogeography. The project is part of the "International Census of Marine Microbes" or ICOMM. It is a great paper that I encourage everyone to read.
Steve Allison and Jennifer's paper about the litter reciprocal transplant experiment was accepted in Ecology yesterday. A big congratulations to everyone in Microbial Group that participated in this study. And we look forward to see Renaud's follow-up study on the metagenomic changes in this experiment.
