          Challenge:       The   13th   Symposium   SAME     (this  year  called  First  EMBO  Conference  on  Aquatic   Microbial   Ecology)   was   hold   in   Stresa,   Italy.   With   440   attendees   (microbial   ecologists,   aquatic   and   environmental   microbiologists,   and   scientists   with   an   interest   in   aquatic   microbial   ecology)     from  over  50  countries  this  meeting  was  one  of  the   largest  of  the  SAME  series.       The  beauty  of  this  series  is  the  concept  of  a  small-­‐ scale   meeting   without   parallel   sessions,   ensuring   the   highest   attendance   to   oral   presentations,   as   well   as   to   posters,   with   the   participation   by   the   world   leaders   in   the   field   of   aquatic   microbial   ecology.   Outstanding   keynote   lectures,   high   consideration   for   PhD   students   and   young   researchers   combined   with   a   number   of   social   events  make  these  meetings  unique.       In  2015,  we  will  have  the  pleasure  to  host  SAME  14   here  in  Uppsala.  Exciting!  

    ...   Limno   Intern:   From   now   on   we   will   use   medarbetarportalen   as   communication   and   information   platform.   This   is   how   you   get   there:,   login  with   your   password  A  and   find  the  group:    grupper  >  Limnologi  >  Document  >   limno.     Feel   free   to  explore   the   features  of   this  page  and   fill   this   page   with   information.     The   information   from   our   old   Ping-­‐Pong   site     will   be   gradually   moved   here.   Make   sure   that     your   upload   may   NOT   be   perceived   as   offensive,   insulting  or  criminal  under  the  Swedish  Penal  Code   or   violates   the   copyright   laws.   This   also   includes   papers   and   books!   For   this   purpose   we   will   use   Dropbox.       In   case   you   are   uncertain   about   the   content   you   want   to   upload   or   to   suggest   ideas   for   structure   and  content  -­‐  please  contact  Friederike.     Also   note   that   you   have   full   managing   rights   for   this  site  (including    “delete  file…  J  ”).

      Welcome  to  Limno:  

    Martha   Schattenhofer   from   Germany   starts   her   postdoc   with   Stefan   on   the   topic:   “Adaptation   of   microbial   communities   to   changes   in   the   environment”.       She   did   her   PhD   on   the   topic   of   distribution   and   diversity   of   marine   bacterioplankton   at   the   MPI   for   marine   microbiology   in   Bremen,   Germany.   During   her   first   postdoc   she   was   the   project   coordinator   of   the     Helmholtz-­‐Alberta-­‐Initiative   at   the   UFZ   in   Leipzig,   Germany   dealing   with   sustainable  oil  sands  tailings  management.  

    Aunchalee   Aussanasuwannakul   is   a   researcher   from   Thailand.   Her   research   has   focused   on   relating   fish  growth  to   flesh  quality.    She  received  her  Ph.D.   in  Animal  and  Food   Sciences  with  an  emphasis  on  Aquaculture  from  West  Virginia  University,  U.S.A.  in   2011.   Her   dissertation   used   fertile   (2N)   and   sterile   (3N)   female   rainbow   trout   (Oncorhynchus  mykiss)   as   a   model   evaluating   the   effect   of   egg   development   on   nutrient   turnover   and   the   impact   of   this   turnover   on   fillet   quality.       Her   recent   project   related   muscle   organization   and   molecular   components     to   flesh   texture   of   rainbow   trout   fed   plant-­‐based   diet   was   conducted     in  collaboration  with  INRA  –  Fish  Physiology  and  Genomics  Laboratory  in  France.    

      Aunchalee  will   join  Limnology  in  Peters  group  as  a  postdoctoral   fellow  for  six  months  to  study  the   development  and  growth  of  perch  in  relation  to  food  quality.  

    Lyubov   Bragina   is   a   PhD   student   from  Dundalk   Institute   of   Technology   (Ireland)   currently   visiting  Uppsala   as   part   of   the   COST  Action   "Netlake"   short   term   scientific   missions   (host   Stefan   Bertilsson).     Water  quality  is  a  priority  area  in  Ireland  is  very  important,  partly  because   many  lakes  are  used  as  drinking  water  resources.       Lyubov’s   PhD   project   deals   with   how   intensive   agriculture   and   cattle   farming  may  affect  the  sustainable  use  of  surface  waters  as  drinking  water   reservoirs.  One  tool  used   is  microbial  source  tracking  with  E.  coli  as   fecal   indicators  and  the  influence  of  environmental  change  on  pathogen  survival   and  dispersion.    

    Marcus   Wallin   is   starting   a   PostDoc   with   Gesa.   He   is   interested   in    the  landscape  C  cycling  and  particular  the  influence  of  aquatic  systems  and   their   function   as   conduits   for   export   of   C   and   GHG´s   across     the   terrestrial/aquatic/atmosphere   interfaces.   He   did   his   PhD   at   SLU     and  is  currently  finishing  a  postdoc  at  UU,  Earth  Sciences.     From  October  he  will  move   to   Limno   and  work  within   the   LAGGE  project   modelling  C  and  N  in  aquatic  systems.  He  is  looking  forward  to  the  project   and  to  meet  new  (and  old
