The secret life of cheese: Using fermented foods to dissect microbial diversity
The complexity of most microbial communities has made it challenging to develop basic principles of how microbial communities form and function. To overcome these challenges, we are using tractable microbial communities from cheeses and other fermented foods as model microbial communities. In this talk, I'll describe our work deconstructing and reconstructing the microbial diversity of artisan cheese rinds. A large-scale survey of American and European cheeses reveals an unexpected, yet predictable and tractable diversity of bacteria and fungi. Using in vitro reconstructions of these communities in the lab, we are uncovering mechanisms that determine microbial diversity in cheeses. In addition to providing new model systems for microbial ecology and evolution, our work provides useful insights for the management of food systems and the human microbiome.
Public lecture and Q&A will be followed by an informal discussion in Jaharis 133 until 2pm.

Association of Tufts Alumnae - Night at the MuseumDec 3, 2014, 5:45pm EST
Join the women of the Association of Tufts Alumnae for an evening of culture and conversation at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
Tufts’ School of Museum of Fine Arts Professor Patrick Carter will lead us on a tour of some of his favorite exhibits and provide insights into the working process and development of art works from the perspective of an artist. He will also lead us to visit the visiting Jamie Wyeth exhibit; and as a comparison of style, we will view and talk about two works of John Singer Sargent in the museum's permanent collection.
Following the tour with Professor Carter, we will gather at a local bar (to be announced) for wine, coffee, and conversation.
Admission to the MFA is free on Wednesday evenings, so ticket price includes the tour and a beverage.
