Reviews have been very positive.  See for example

See the first two minutes of the film below (note – the voice may be familiar to people who know, well, me).

Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem and we need to do many things to combat it.  This film is an important contribution to the fight.  I hope to see people at the showing (if you are nearby) and if not – you should find a way to see this film.

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.
