PhD Comics @phdcomics animated cartoon on #OpenAccess interview of me & Nick Shockey

I assume if you pay any attention to science satire/humor you are familiar with PhD Comics by Jorge Cham. If not, you must check it out. It is simply brilliant stuff. And thus I was completely floored when I was contacted about whether I wanted to be interviewed by Jorge for a video he was commissioned to make as part of Open Access week activities. I mean – I figging say no to almost everything these days but I said yes to this almost immediately. And so I did a phone interview with him and Nick Shockey from SPARC. And then Jorge worked his magic — and here it is.

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
