Alex (short for Alexandra) has been one of our DOE Bioenergy REU this summer. We couldn’t have asked for a more awesome lab visitor. I (Josh) was super excited to host Alex because she is a student in the Biochemistry Department at Virginia Tech – the same department I got my undergraduate degree. Alex jumped in a worked with Erin Carr and Herr Lab collaborator Wayne Riekhof in studying the plant growth stimulation capabilities of different Methylobacterium strains isolated from soil, soil crusts, plants, and a dirty stream across the street!
Here’s Alex discussing her poster with laboratory mentor Erin Carr.
We had a great summer REU research symposium today!comments powered by Disqus
