Incoming postdoctoral researcher Stephanie A. Carr and Dr. Beth Orcutt used single cell genomics to identify an Atribacteria cell from frozen Antarctic sediment. Reported in Frontiers in Microbiology, this demonstrates the potential for single cell techniques to unlock a massive amount of genomic information in existing frozen sediment cores.
Dr. Nichole Price and Emily Donham were part of new research published in Nature Climate Change that provides a stark look into the future of ocean acidification and how it is making it difficult for coral to build skeletons and easier for other plants and animals to erode them.
