Meeting of Interest: DOE JGI "Genomics of Energy and Environment" 3/20-22

A meeting of interest: The Annual DOE JGI User Meeting.  Note – open to anyone – not just those funded by DOE.
Topics include
  • Synthetic biology & biodesign
  • Systems biology/transcriptional networks
  • Application of single cell genomics in microbial ecology and bioprospecting
  • Genomic analysis of biofuel traits in maize and switchgrass
  • Cloud computing as a platform for large scale sequence analysis
  • Ocean viruses: towards population genomics, understanding virus-host interactions, and accessing the uncultured
  • Omics in the Arctic: Genome-enabled contributions to carbon cycle and biogeochemical research in high-latitude ecosystems
  • Ancient DNA
Plus – Carl Zimmer.  Yes, I said Carl Zimmer.  

Author: Jonathan Eisen

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
