Undergraduate Research: Built Environment Genomes #microBEnet #Sloan

Just a quick post here.  We are continuing working on our Undergraduate Research projects in the “microbiology of the built environment” in my lab as part of our microBEnet project.  For more on the project we did last year on genome sequencing see this web site:Undergraduate Research: Built Environment Genomes | microBEnet: The microbiology of the Built Environment network.

And here is a video with some details on the project:

Also check out our new undergraduate project on sampling microbes in aquariums.

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
