Kudos to Dana Devries, Alex Martin, et al. for new cat butt microbe genome report 

Kudos to the students Dana Devries and Alex Martin and to their mentors Holly Ganz and David Coil for their new genome report.  The paper is part of our “cat butt” project.

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
