  • Recent graduate Sara Lincoln on DISENTANGLING MARINE PLANKTONIC ARCHAEAL COMMUNITIES AND THEIR MEMBRANE LIPID ASSEMBLAGES,
  • Roger Summons on THE BIOGEOCHEMISTRY OF OOIDS AND OOLITES,
  • Julio Sepúlveda on VERTICAL AND SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF INTACT AND CORE ARCHAEAL LIPIDS IN RESPONSE TO OXYGENATION GRADIENTS,
  • Kate French on ASSESSING THE DISTRIBUTION OF CAROTENOIDS THROUGH TIME USING TANDEM MASS SPECTROMETRY,
  • Sharon Newman on ETHER LIPID ASSESSMENT AT THE SEMAIL OPHIOLITE, OMAN: MICROBIAL DIVERSITY IN A SERPENTINITE-HOSTED ECOSYSTEM,
  • Florence Schubotz on the INFLUENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS ON MICROBIAL MEMBRANE LIPID DISTRIBUTION AT HOT SPRINGS IN YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK as well as (!) BACTERIAL SOURCES FOR BETAINE LIPIDS IN ANOXIC MARINE SEDIMENTS,
  • Emily Matys on BACTERIOHOPANEPOLYOLS IN OCEAN WATERS SUBJECT TO OXYGENATION GRADIENTS,
  • Ross Williams on COMBINED BACTERIAL MEMBRANE LIPID AND COMPOUND-SPECIFIC ISOTOPIC INVESTIGATION OF EOCENE ARCTIC PALEOSOLS.
