Justine Garcia defended her Ph.D. thesis today. She gave an excellent talk and then ate pizza and cake. Overall, a pretty good day. Thanks to her family for coming to celebrate.

What she once may have seen as a never ending story is coming to an end. Congratulations!neverending-image-1

The Gerardo lab participated in the second annual Atlanta Science Festival this weekend. At the expo, members of the lab cultured 400 plates of Luria Broth agar with members of the Atlanta community. Participants swabbed hands, ear, noses, cell phones and the bottoms of their shoes. Check out mycrobes.org to see what grows.
