Anni Djurhuus selected for UNOLS training cruise

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Anni Djurhuus, a postdoctoral researcher, was selected as a cruise participant on an upcoming UNOLS chief-scientist training cruise in July 2016.

These cruises and pre-cruise information workshops will instruct early career marine scientists on how to effectively plan for, acquire, and utilize time at sea for multi-disciplinary research and education. The program will take place in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, home port of the R/V Atlantis. On the cruise the participants will explore several seeps and canyons using the human operated vehicle "Alvin".

As a part of the marine genomics group, led by Mya Breitbart, Anni will be collecting samples to detect microbial dispersal and biogeographical patterns of microorganisms.
