Andy and Melisa participated in the 10th Annual Secchi Day
on Beaver Lake, which provides all of the drinking water to Northwest Arkansas. They showed the nearly 600 people who attended how to use a microscope to look at the diatoms of Beaver Lake. A fun time was had by all.
A new PhD student from Argentina, Melisa Kozaczek, arrived in the United States and joined the lab. She is carving out a project related to our NSF grant on bacteria-to-diatom horizontal gene transfer. Welcome, Melisa!
