I have a bit of a massive backlog of stuff to blog about, so let me combine 3 posts into one. Congratulations are due to Deepa Varkey for:
1. finishing her PhD on temperature adaptation of marine cyanobacteria
2. getting a postdoc position at the c3 Institute at UTS working with Peter Ralph and Justin Seymour.
3. publishing her first big paper in the ISME journal on the effects of low temperature on tropical and temperate isolates of the marine cyanobacterium Synechococcus. Deepa also won an award for this paper from the Biomolecular Frontiers Research Centre for the best paper by an early career researcher in the Centre in 2015.
Good luck with the new job Deepa, we'll miss you here (and don't forget about writing up the other manuscripts from your PhD for publication!)
