Biodiversity Museum Day on Sunday, Feb. 12

UC Davis will celebrate “Biodiversity Museum Day” on Sunday, Feb. 12 when four museums or centers that engage in education and research involving insects, vertebrates or plants will host open houses.  The Bohart Museum of Entomology, the Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology and the Botanical Conservatory will be open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m., while the Center for Plant Diversity will be open from 2 to 4 p.m.  “This will be a fun day where people of all ages can visit UC Davis and check out a number of our research and teaching collections,” said Tabatha Yang, education and outreach coordinator for the Bohart Museum and Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology. “Each collection is special and an important scientific resource. I think people will be amazed.”

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
