This position will involve working with several experienced students to learn to culture algae. Starting with lake samples through isolation of axenic (free of microbes) strains of algae maintained in both liquid culture as well as on solidified agar media. A particular strain of algae that produces a biochemical that has shown promise in preventing the transmission of AIDS is of particular interest, and can be found in lake samples throughout the world. We are obtaining water samples through ‘citizen science’ (network of friends). The work will involve microscopy, contamination testing and basic laboratory methods of media preparation.
