Very excited that Jaime Bibiloni Isaksson, PhD student in the Seymour Lab at UTS and co-supervised here, has been accepted into the 2013 Summer Course on Microbial Oceanography at the Center for Microbial Oceanography, Research and Education, University of Hawaii!. Congrats Jaime
A new manuscript has been accepted into the prestigious ecology journal Ecology Letters (Impact Factor= 17.557!), titled
“Microbial community responses to anthropogenically induced environmental change: towards a systems approach”
Andrew Bissett(1), Mark V Brown(2), Steve Sicilliano(3), Peter Thrall(1)
outlining a way for microbial ecology to move towards more holistic systems biology approach’s in order to progress in many areas.
