Urban Farm study: how managements affect leaf and root microbiomes 🍓. Great thanks to Bill Patterson, the owner of Patterson Fruit Farm!
Genomics of adaptation
Collecting wild strawberries🍓 for experiments at Holden. These wild 🍓 are yummy. Jess and Elizabeth ate so many in the field!
Wild strawberry🍓 survey at Holden with Jess and Elizabeth! Many polyploid🧬🧬🧬🧬 populations. Some with polyploids and diploids🧬🧬 coexisting.
Duckweeds survey at Holden with Jess and Elizabeth! Half of the ponds with 3 species coexisting: Spirodela, Lemna, Woffia
Measuring leaf traits using microbalance for experiment: plant–microbiome interactions 🌱–🦠 under environmental stress.
Welcome to the lab👩🔬, Elizabeth! Elizabeth is interested in genetics and ecology. She works on how genome duplication🧬🧬 affects species interactions 🌱–🌱 under stress.
Welcome to the lab👩🔬, Maris! Maris aims to become a forensic biologist solving crimes. She plans to learn 🧬 genotyping and sequencing in our lab.
