Tiedje Lab - Data Club Schedule
The week before your presentation send an email to Lisa Boughner (lbough1 at msu.edu) with a brief summary of what you will talk about. She will distribute to the whole group.
If you miss presenting a data club it is YOUR responsibility to make up that data club within one month. E-mail everyone that you will not be presenting due to a conflict, etc. AND schedule a new date and time. You are responsible for reserving the room for your make-up date.
Future meetings TBA

"Bacteria-bacteria interactions: from binary interactions to community establishment"
Summary: I am studying the role of bacteria-bacteria interactions in the establishment of microbial communities at the root-soil interface using Arabidopsis as a model host species. Understanding the complex interactions among and between root-associated and root-depleted bacteria will provide new insights into how bacterium-bacterium interactions contribute to the overall stability of the community and to which extent these interactions impact community structure as well as host fitness. Towards this end, I am using reductionist approaches that include an in vitro antagonistic activity screening and re-colonization of roots by defined bacterial strains in different gnotobiotic systems. To carry out these projects, I take advantage of our recently established reference bacterial culture collection (~ 237 bacterial isolates) of the Arabidopsis root microbiota. Over this study, I identified high competitors among microbiota members which are currently assessed in gnotobiotic re-colonization experiments.
