Maine Science Podcast - episode 55

A conversation with Alaina Weinheimer, a postdoctoral fellow at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences where she examines how bacteria fight viruses in the ocean. While pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Biology at Penn State, Alaina worked in coral reef ecology labs where she was exposed to the numerous threats to coral and the potential roles of microbes and viruses in mediating or exacerbating these threats.

Alaina was a 5 Minute Genius™ speaker for the 2023 Maine Science Festival; you can watch her talk on our YouTube Channel.

This conversation was recorded in June 2023.
