Wrap up of #PSB17 – Pacific Symposium in Biocomputing

Just got back from the Pacific Symposium in Biocomputing. The meeting had some aspects that may be of interest to various folks.

Electronic proceedings of the meeting are here.

I talked in a session on functional predictions.  I was asked to do this at the last minute so I made my slides by hand. Here they are.

 

I also recorded audio of my talk. Have not synched it to the slides but this may be of interest to some.

 

And I made a Storify of Tweets related to the meeting:

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.
