Crosspost from http://microbe.net – fun stuff from Rob Dunn

I am cross-posting this from the microBEnet blog I co-write:
I am enjoying the posts to the Scientific American Blogs by Rob Dunn on his and other Citizen Science project(s) and I thought I would share here.
If you do not know about Rob Dunn’s projects, well, you should.  I am particularly fascinated by “The Wild Life of Your Homes” which relate to the above posts.  He does some other fascinating projects too like “School of Ants” and “Wild Life of Your Body“.  Completely brilliant stuff worth checking out.

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
