The microbe team welcomed two new students, Elsa (Jia Li) and Norah (Xue Rui), two visiting undergraduates to the group. They are joining the lab for 5 months to complete their undergraduate honors dissertations at Tianjin University, China. Both are working on the molecular diversity of microbes, in the context of environmental variability. Elsa is focusing on the cyanobacteria of the North Pacific, while Norah is working with cyanobacterial communities from the PICO project. Welcome!
