Lots of new faces in the lab

This fall the lab welcomed two new PhD students, DeVante Dawson and Rachel Howard, who are both excited to work on coral microbiomes. Jessica Tittl also joined the lab as a full-time technician to work on validating a probiotics treatment for coral disease. Stephanie Miller (BSc Computer Science) joined the lab in the spring to help us with data management, script development, and getting us all on github. Monica Schul, who will be graduating in December with a BSc in Marine Science and Biotechnology (double major) has been working with our postdoc Anya Brown on coral microbiomes and macroalgal interactions with coral.
