This past Tuesday Carla and Jeff drove over to Oxford, MS for our first group meeting to plan out the project. We had a productive day long workshop to discuss field work, personnel hiring, develop a comprehensive sample processing protocol, pose for photographs, and eat southern diner food. We are well on our way to getting things rolling.
In addition, NSF issues a press release about the Dimensions grants, and highlighted our mussel project. UA and Ole Miss also issued nice stories to coincide with the press release. Links to the stories below.
