I’m happy to say that the first half of 2019 has been fairly productive from a publishing standpoint, with five papers out so far. Both Celeste and Jordan have first-author Genome Announcements in MRA:

Lanclos, V. Celeste, Michael W. Henson, Chase Doiron, and J. Cameron Thrash. 2019. Draft Genome Sequence of Strain LSUCC0057, a Member of the SAR92 Clade of Gammaproteobacteria. Microbiology Resource Announcements 8:e00599-19. doi:10.1128/MRA.00599-19

Coelho, Jordan T., Michael W. Henson, and J. Cameron Thrash. 2019. Draft Genome Sequence of Strain LSUCC0112, a Gulf of Mexico Representative of the Oligotrophic Marine Gammaproteobacteria. Microbiology Resource Announcements 8:e00521-19. doi:10.1128/MRA.00521-19

Our first curriculum paper for the microbiology-focused Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE sections) is available at JMBE:

Bakshi, Arundhati, Austen T. Webber, Lorelei E. Patrick, E. William Wischusen, and Cameron Thrash. 2019. The CURE for Cultivating Fastidious Microbes.Journal of Microbiology and Biology Education 20(1). doi:10.1128/jmbe.v20i1.1635.

And I published a short commentary proposing that we conduct risk assessment using expected value calculations when designing and evaluating studies aimed at cultivating new microorganisms from nature:

Thrash, J. Cameron. 2019. Culturing the uncultured: risk vs. reward.mSystems 4:e00130-90. doi:10.1128/mSystems.00130-19

Finally, a third Dead Zone paper with Olivia Mason’s lab (Lauren Campbell’s second first authorship paper on the topic), in collaboration with Nancy Rabalais, is out now as well:

Campbell, Lauren G., J. Cameron Thrash, Nancy N. Rabalais, and Olivia U. Mason. 2019. Extent of the annual Gulf of Mexico hypoxic zone influences microbial community structure. PLoS ONE 14(4): e0209055.
