ASM 2010 Posters: The results of fruitful collaborations with scientists all over the world

Most of you are probably back to work after the ASM conference in San Diego. It was a great conference with a lot of exciting talks and posters and we hope you enjoyed our beautiful city.

MO BIO Labs presented four posters at ASM and the PDFs are now available online for viewing. These were the results of collaborations with scientists from all over the world. To view the posters, click over to the Source link.

We Would Like to Thank:

Dr. Charles Lee, from the Craig Cary Lab, who worked with us for months generating data from time course experiments and using soil collected from Antarctica to analyze the effects of LifeGuard Soil Preservation Solution on RNA isolation. It was a great body of work that was an incredible effort.

Dr. Chris Kitts and Alice Hamrick, who helped us to ask some important questions about the differences in microbial populations isolated using different bead beating methods (vortex vs. the PowerLyzer 24 Homogenizer). Two undergraduates, Victoria Valencia and Mira Elnan, did numerous T-RFLP experiments to analyze the results from 6 different soils. In the end, we found that actually, bias seen with DNA extraction has a lot more to do with the soil than the DNA extraction method!

MO BIO Labs presented a poster on a novel method for isolating DNA and RNA from biofilms. This project was a collaboration with several researchers around the globe working with various biofilms with ranging levels of difficulty in lysis and inhibitor content.

And last but not least, we would like to thank Dr. Janet Jansson for an excellent seminar Monday evening at the Hyatt. Her breadth of projects spanning from Crohn’s disease to the oil spill in the gulf makes one wonder if she ever sleeps. The seminar is going to be available online soon. We’ll let you know when.

How Can You Work with the MO BIO R&D Team?

We were asked by quite a few people, how does one get the opportunity to collaborate with MO BIO and do a poster together? It’s easy. Just contact MO BIO, and we can discuss it.

We have questions we want to ask and are always looking for labs with undergraduates who need a cool project to do. Or if your student has an idea for a project and needs support and direction, we can help there too.

In addition, if you want to be involved in evaluating new methods for MO BIO and be on our beta-testing team, let us know. We always have new methods and ideas that need outside validation. And this is a great way to get your foot in the door for a career in biotech. By collaborating with a biotech company and learning the ropes of how we look at science and form questions from a commercial stand point, it will help make your resume much more attractive to industry hiring managers.

We hope to see you all at ASM 2011 in New Orleans, LA. Start planning now!
