Congratulations Dr. Bulseco!!! Ashley successfully defended her PhD and is off to do a postdoc with Joe Vallino at the Marine Biological Laboratory and Julie Huber at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
New fun paper out on our fair city! We did a paper examining the history of Boston's relationship with its harbor. Students in my class did a lot of the historical research to make this happen! Read more here.
Fungi! See Pat's most recent paper on how nutrient enrichment affects salt marsh fungal communities! We observed an increase in the proportion of putative fungal denitrifiers! Link to the paper is here.
Funded! We are excited to get DOE funding from the Community Sequencing Program to sequence the metagenomes, transcriptomes, and metabolomes from the TIDE project samples!
Welcome to our newest PhD student, Brian Donnelly, who is coming to us from the Weston Lab at Villanova. Brian will be working on the biogeochemistry of tidal fresh marshes.
