The 7th International Conference on Nitrification hosted by Prof. Jeanette Norton at Utah State University starts today! Presentations will be given by our own Mia Sungeun Lee and Eleftheria Bachtsevani. https://caas.usu.edu/icon/
Congratulations to our newest FBF cohort! From philosophy to nuclear engineering, wildfires to assisted orchestration and more, check out the exciting collaborations launched by our 2021 grantees:
#research #France @UCBerkeley
If emailing anyone in our group @ec-lyon.fr, the local electricity grid has experienced 'a problem' meaning that the entire university, including our email server, is estimated to be down for the next five days. Incubators and freezers are a bigger concern however....
A nice summary by the fantastic lead author Damien Finn of our paper "Functional trait relationships demonstrate life strategies in terrestrial prokaryotes" https://fems-microbiology.org/femsmicroblog-physiology-determines-where-organism-thrives/
A warm welcome to new team members Dr. Ruoyu Hu and Eleftheria Bachtsevani! Dr. Hu is doing a postdoc on mycorrhizal fungi and N-cycling, and Eleftheria is researching the impact of pesticides on soil nitrifiers for her PhD. @CHazard99 @graemewnicol
The field season has started in Ny-Alesund! We are studying microbial colonization, adaptation, activity and interactions across spatial and temporal gradients with @Rey_Mourot,@bartekluks, @NPIglaciology.
Just published in Soil Biology and Biochemistry, an opinion piece by @CHazard99, Jim Prosser and @graemewnicol on the use of potential assays, and what they can (and can’t tell you) about soil processes in situ. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0038071721001152
