Title: Dirt cheap? Sifting through the rich microbial diversity of forest soil

It may just be dirt to some, but forest soils are exploding with life! Join us as we continue our 10th anniversary spectacular with Life Science Cafe alumnus Dr. Lauren Alteio as we discuss microbial communities, diversity, climate change, and more!

Dr Lauren Alteio completed her PhD at UMass in 2019 where she worked on soil microbial communities using sequencing techniques. Since 2019, she has been at the University of Vienna in Austria working on understanding microbial interactions in breakdown of carbon in soils.
