Moreno in Antarctica!
Ph.D. student Carly Moreno (Marchetti Lab) is participating on the PalmerLTER research cruise in Antarctica. For the next 6 weeks, Carly will be collecting samples and performing incubation experiments to investigate the environmental factors that regulate phytoplankton growth by using molecular sequencing approaches. She is also collecting measurements of biogenic gases using an underway mass spectrometer as part of a collaboration with the Cassar Lab at Duke University.
