Challenges and opportunities in microbiome studies

I gave a talk recently at the Future of Genomic Medicine meeting in San Diego that I thought might be of interest to some here.

I posted the slides to Slideshare. See below:

I also recorded the screen and audio using Camtasia and posted the video to Youtube.

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.
