Last week, Elizabeth Dinsdale joined Ashley Hagen at the American Society for Microbiology on a podcast episode of Meet the Microbiologist! Liz chatted about various shark species and how epidermal microbiome samples are collected from each of these species. Liz also discusses how shotgun metagenomics is being used to characterise the structure of the microbiome and the functions these microbes are providing to the hosts.
There’s so many more interesting findings and questions covered in this podcast about shark epidermal microbiomes, you can listen to the full podcast here: https://asm.org/Podcasts/MTM/Episodes/Shark-Epidermis-Microbiome-with-Elizabeth-Dinsdale
