We are excited to announce our embarkment into a new project that focuses on metabolite exchange between moss and symbiotic cyanobacteria. Graduate student Rebecca Key will lead the work as part of her dissertation, combining molecular and chemical 'omics measurements to track C, N, and S cycling between moss and associated microbes. The project is supported by JGI’s Community Science Program and led by PI Stuart McDaniel (UF Biology) along with coPIs Bryndan Durham and Todd Rosenstiel (PSU).
