Notes and materials from MARS Sample Handling Workshops 2000-2001 #Curiosity

I had the pleasure of serving as a panel member for some NASA sponsored “Mars Sample Handling Workshops” in 2000-2001 and thereabouts.  I have all these materials still from those meetings and in light of the Mars Curiosity Rover landing and other recent activities I thought it would be good to share them.  Most/all are public domain materials but not all are easy to find so I thought I would post them here.  Note – I have done no clean up of scans – will do so at some point. Enjoy.

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
