Welcome to Marriam and Mohsin!


We’re excited to welcome back Marriam and Mohsin, who have returned to visit our lab for a year. Mohsin will be isolating non-rhizobium plant growth-promoting bacteria from legume nodules. Marriam will be collaborating with Ellen on isolating bacteriophage from rhizobia.

Anthony Pham and Huy Ha present their results at the BSP symposium

Anthony and Huy presented the results of their independent research projects at the Biology Scholars Program symposium in April. ¬†Anthony’s research examines why some rhizobial species are common while others are rare, and Huy’s research investigates the nifH and nodC genes of rhizobial strains found in northern California. ¬†Both did a great job presenting their research!
