UC Davis Magazine … not just tooting the #UCDavis horn …

I have just joined an advisory group for the UC Davis Magazine and I am really happy with their new direction. They are trying to make the magazine a little less “UC Davis is awesome” and more “Here are some interesting things to think about, with a UC Davis angle”. The new Fall Issue is a good example of this. There is for example a nice article by Sasha Abramsky about student involvement (or the lack thereof it). Plus there is a little video interview to go with the article. Perhaps even more “interesting” is the article on the future of higher education by Clifton Parker. Not exactly a glory piece about UC or UC Davis. Anyway … just thought I would put this out there. Any opinions on the magazine please send them my way – the staff there seem great and really interested in feedback.

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
