ACTIONr Training Visit # 01 (May 2023) -Lyon (France) – (April 24 – May 05, 2023)

Organizers: École Centrale de Lyon, Prof. G. Nicol, Dr C. Hazard

The first training mission of ACTIONr was hosted by École Centrale de Lyon (Lyon, France). The focus was on Nitrification and the Microbial Ecology of the N cycle. Two PhD students of the University of Thessaly followed intensive personalized training on i) the cultivation and maintenance of microorganisms participating in different relevant steps of N cycling, (ii) the isolation and characterization of novel ammonia- and nitrite-oxidizers, and (iii) stable isotope tracing/probing for microbial ecology of the N cycle, and got associated hands-on experience with data analysis. This was the first training visit for UTH staff who had the chance to interact with the staff of Laboratoire Ampère (Environmental Microbial Genomics Group) at École Centrale de Lyon and gain exposure to a premium academic environment.
