The Microbial World in Arctic Marine Environments: Nature’s First Responders
Microbial community analysis through DNA sequencing has opened up a new approach to understanding the world around us. This talk will describe field studies in various environments including arctic marine sediments where oil-degrading microbes may be “first responders” in the event of an oil spill.
Speaker: Dr. Rhonda Clark is the Research Project Coordinator for the Geomicrobiology group and Project Manager of the Genome Canada GENICE project at the University of Calgary. In this role she has organized and participated in numerous field trips to exotic locations in Canada’s north.
