Day 1

Day one is complete, and it’s been a busy one! The class began with a presentation by Dr. Brad Stevenson, followed by a talk from Jason Masoner, who we will be working with tomorrow at the Norman Landfill Research Site (NLRS).

After a quick lunch, it was off to the lab, and a quick lecture and lesson on microbial growth requirements by Dr. Mike McInerney and a demonstration of the roll tube technique.

All of the media we’ll be needing for the cultivation portion of the class was made by the students, and they got a firsthand look at how to use an anaerobic chamber.
