The Microbe Project – A Portal to Federal Efforts in Microbial Research #microBEnet

For those interested in what the US Government is doing in areas relating to microbiology, there is a useful site to check out called “The Microbe Project“. The goal of this project is to “to maximize the opportunities offered by genome-enabled microbial science to benefit science and society, through coordinated interagency efforts to promote research, infrastructure development, education and outreach.” There is a lot of information there on different agencies and their funding opportunities.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). 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
