The American Institute of Architects are looking for “Educational Proposals” for their 2015 Convention #microBEnet

The American Institute of Architects are looking for “Educational Proposals” for their 2015 Convention: See Abstract Scorecard.  I just put in a simple proposal to have a 60 minute panel discussion on “Architecture and Microbiology”.  But maybe someone else out there would want to put together a more comprehensive proposal on Microbiomes and Architecture and Design and, well, lots of other things?  Just a little push to people out there to think about this

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. My lab is in the UC Davis Genome Center and I hold appointments in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine and the Department of Evolution and Ecology in the College of Biological Sciences. My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis (see my lab site here which has more information on lab activities).  In addition to research, I am heavily involved in the Open Access publishing and Open Science movements.
