  • Title: Cultivation of dominant soil microbes
  • Principal investigator: Kristen DeAngelis (
  • Institution: University of Massachusetts - Amherst

  • Team members: Mallory Choudoir; Achala Narayanan; Grace Pold
  • Abstract:

    In order to support work in the labs of Kristen DeAngelis, Serita Frey and others, we wish to cultivate additional dominant soil bacteria from a site near the Prospect Hill and SWaN long-term warming experiments. By isolating, co-culturing, and sequencing additional dominant soil microbes from the Harvard Forest, our research aims to link meta-omic sequence data with microbial physiology, and to incorporate this data into a series of microbially-explicit carbon models.
