Labile Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM) Workshop


The Labile DOM Workshop will be held on September 19-22, 2022 at the University of Georgia's Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC), in Athens, Georgia.

Elizabeth Kujawinski, Lihini Aluwihare, and Art Edison are organizing this workshop around chemical measurements (Mass Spectrometry and Nuclear Magnetic Spectroscopy) of dissolved metabolites relevant to marine microbes. Our tentative schedule includes the following broad topics: analytical methods, new and emerging applications, and a possible intercomparison exercise. We hope to end the workshop with a white paper describing the steps needed to incorporate these measurements into international efforts like BioGeoSCAPES.

Registration is now open. The deadline for registration is July 31, 2022.

Names of C-CoMP Faculty are emboldened.
