I just wanted to let you all know that I will likely be absent from this blog for the month of July. I am heading out to sea (woohoo!) for some deep sea microbiology (much more exciting at sea than in the lab). If you care to follow along, you can do so here. I look forward to sharing more microbial awesomeness when I return in July. Until then, I am sure that Emily, Kevin, and Dipti will keep you entertained and intrigued!
