Wish I were going: ISME-International Society for Microbial Ecology – Aug 21-26 #ISME16

Sadly I am not able to go to this this year but it looks really good.  21-26 August 2016 | ISME-International Society for Microbial Ecology. Lots of great sessions and speakers.  Follow along via Twitter hashtag #ISME16.

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.
