MMPRNT Autumn Group Meeting

Earlier this month we held our autumn MMPRNT meeting that featured some great presentations and discussions about the project. We had special guest talks from Jim Moran (PNNL) about tracking rhizosphere processes and Phil Robertson (KBS/MSU) about the new GLBRC. Special thanks to Jim Moran, Phil Robertson, Jim Tiedje, and members of Ashley Shade’s and Greg Bonito’s labs for taking part!
