This year, the ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting was held in the beautiful city of Honolulu in Hawai’i! PI Dr. Susanne Neuer gave a very insightful and well-received talk on sediment trap material composition, as well as the relative contribution of marine cyanobacteria and protists in these traps from the Sargasso Sea. Master’s student Bianca Cruz presented a poster on the influence of heterotrophic bacteria on transparent exopolymeric particle production and subsequent aggregation and sinking of the ubiquitous marine picocyanobacteria Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus. We look forward to the next ASM meeting in 2019!
