Sequencing grant funding from UTIA!

The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture’s Genomics Center for the Advancement of Agriculture has awarded Drs. Wooliver, Jagadamma, and Stephanie Kivlin (EEB) a sequencing grant for their work on the role of soil microbial communities in mediating carbon cycling and climate resiliency in agricultural soils. With this grant, they will be able to use next-generation sequencing as an approach to understand composition of soil microbial communities from a recent lab-scale incubation manipulating soil moisture regimes and cover crop residue diversity. Congratulations Rachel, Sindhu, and Stephanie!
