Check out the latest lab and field blog post by Sarah McAnulty, a doctoral candidate in the Nyholm lab in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of Connecticut.
Sarah studies the symbiotic relationship between the Hawaiian Bobtail squid and the glowing bacterium Vibrio fischeri. She analyzes the immune cells of the squid to figure out how these bacteria are tolerated.
