The Dinsdale lab collects samples all over the world. Sampling expeditions include forays into nearby San Diego marine environments such as Catalina Island, Mission Bay and San Diego Bay. We have also collected samples in Chile and Brazil.
In addition to sampling expeditions, we travel near and far to present our work at conferences and at public outreach venues. We have presented at both national and international meetings including those of the San Diego Microbiology Group (SDMG), the American Society of Microbiology (ASM), the International Symposium for Microbial Ecology (ISME) and others.
