We had a site visit from Paula Olsiewski last week. Paula is the Program Officer for the Sloan Foundation program in microbiology of the built environment (and thus our Program Officer for microBEnet). The visit went very well (I think). In addition to discussing many things associated with microBEnet past, present and future we also gave Paula a tour of some of our activities. This included a visit to the aquaria we have been sampling as part of our undergraduate project on microbial ecology of succession in salt water aquaria. (See more about this project here and here).
Anyway – here are a few pics of what we looked at.
