USGS Research Microbiologist presents science and participates in science communication at 2018 ASM Microbe Meeting

Christina Kellogg (SPCMSC Research Microbiologist) will present a poster titled "Metagenomic Analysis of the Microbial Community Associated with the Deep-Sea Coral Lophelia pertusa" and give a 10-min talk about it in a session highlighting key posters at the 2018 American Society for Microbiology MICROBE conference, June 6–11, 2018, in Atlanta, GA.

Kellogg is also an invited speaker in a science communication session called "The Up Goer Five Challenge: Microbiology in Plain Language" during which she will describe her research using only the 1,000 most used words (Spoiler: these words do not include 'coral,' 'bacteria,' 'microbes,' 'DNA,' or 'ocean'!) Kellogg will also be a guest on a live taping of the popular podcast This Week in Microbiology (TWiM).
