Freshwater Colloquium: Plant Growth Promoting Microbiology Opportunities in Aquaponics
April 3, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 5:20 pm
Ryan Newton will present “Stripping Away the Soil: Plant Growth Promoting Microbiology Opportunities in Aquaponics” as part of the School of Freshwater Sciences spring colloquium. The theme of this semester’s colloquium is Trends in Aquaculture: Meeting the Challenge of Feeding a Changing World.
This presentation is open to the public.
Attend in person at the Great Lakes Research Facility or virtually via Zoom at https://wisconsin-edu.zoom.us/j/96875491921?pwd=NTQ2V244QTcyMDkrbUxyNnVKc2xDQT09
Newton is an assistant professor in the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences. His lab studies the microbial ecology of aquatic ecosystems with a focus on how human activities influence the structure and activity of microbial communities. He uses a combination of field, laboratory, and computational approaches to explore the distribution and properties of microorganisms across a range of aquatic systems, including inland lakes, wastewaters, groundwater, and aquaculture systems. Much of his work relies upon molecular and genomic techniques to gain access to the diversity of organisms present.
