A new publication from Yong-Su Jin, an Assoc. Professor of Food Microbiology and #CABBI Co-PI, might help yeasts become more tolerant and better fermenters - thus improving chances of creating biofuels and other bioproducts.

#CABBI researchers are always prepared! Today they’re practicing their science communication skills during a poster session.

CABBI Colloquia

Once a month, CABBI is organizing a colloquium for all of its researchers. At every colloquium, one grad student, postdoc, or PI will give a 20-minute presentation on his or her CABBI research. The presenter finishes the presentation with discussion questions to the audience in order to identify new integration opportunities within a theme, across CABBI themes, and/or with other U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Research Centers (BRCs). Each colloquium will finish with a networking event, including refreshments.

In the audience are CABBI researchers from all three themes. Scientists from the partner institutions are encouraged to attend and/or present through Zoom. The presenters will rotate among the themes and partner institutions.
