Dr. Kevin E. ShumanWesley College’s Dr. Kevin E. Shuman, assistant director of STEM initiatives in the undergraduate research center for analytics, talent, and success (UR-CATS, Wesley College), co-authored, along with Dr. Jacob M. Hilzinger, Dr. Vidhyavathi Raman, Dr. Brian J. Eddie, and Dr. Thomas E. Hanson, on the journal article “ Differential RNA-seq Implicates Sulfide as Master Regulator of S(0) Metabolism in Chlorobaculum tepidum and Other Green Sulfur Bacteria.”

The article was published in the February 2018 issue of “Applied and Environmental Microbiology” (AEM) a biweekly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Society for Microbiology.

Dr. Shuman contributed research completed as a Biological Sciences Ph.D. candidate in Dr. Hanson’s lab at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI, University of Delaware).

Research published in this articled was supported by National Science Foundation grant MCB-1244373 and an IGERT SBE2 fellowship to Dr. Hilzinger. Additional resources were funded by Delaware INBRE (NIGMS GM103446), Delaware EPSCoR (NSF EPS-0814251, NSF IIA-1330446), the State of Delaware, and DBI.
