New funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation!

The Lewis and Alverson labs at the University of Arkansas were awarded $156,849 from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation's Marine Microbiology Initiative to increase the number and diversity of diatoms that can be genetically transformed for use as model species. Our plan is to screen 200-300 phylogenetically diverse diatom species using an iterative high-throughput method that leverages the state-of-the-art flow cytometry equipment at the U of A. You can read more about the program in the GBMF's press release, the Arkansas Newswire, and the U of A's Research Frontiers newsletter.
