The Bosak lab completed a sampling trip to Green Lake in July 2015. Students and postdocs collected water samples from various depths as well as sediment from the lake floor. Check out the link below to see the video of sample collection! Also check out our photos from the trip. Green Lake Trip Movie
The Bosak lab attended the 2015 Astrobiology Science Conference in Chicago, IL. Sharon Newman presented a talk on cyanobacterial fossilization by clay minerals and Shane O’Reilly (a Bosak lab collaborator) presented his recent work on the microbial contribution to ooid formation. Also, make sure to check out abstracts by Andras Zsom (co-advised by Dr. Sara [...]
