Geology PhD student Mingfei Chen, part of Dr. Jessica Conroy's lab group, won an Outstading Student Presentation Award at the AGU Fall Meeting. Mingfei gave a presentation on his PhD work entitled 'Interpreting lacustrine bulk sediment d15N values using metagenomics: a case study in a hypersaline lake system.' This work uses metagenomics as a novel tool to provide information on specific microbial processes that can significantly alter the nitrogen isotope signatures recorded in the lake sediment. Congratulations, Mingfei!!
