February 2006 – Welcome, Louise Lewis, Visiting Researcher
We welcome Louise Lewis from the University of Connecticut! In our lab, she will continue her study of the evolutionary relationships of symbiotic green algae. She is investigating the relationships between the green algae (“zoochlorellae”) engaged in symbioses with different sea anemone species. The “zoochlorellae” are related to lichen algae such as Coccomyxa, connecting her work with research in the Lutzoni lab.
