Tomorrow at @ucdavis: Raquel Peixoto on “Marine probiotics: increasing coral resilience to bleaching through m icrobiome manipulation”

This
week’s Ecology and Evolution Seminarwill be given by Raquel Peixoto on May 17th at 4:10pm in 176 Everson Hall. Come hear the exciting work she’s been doing manipulating microbiomes to increase coral health! Her talk is titled “MARINE PROBIOTICS: INCREASING CORAL RESILIENCE TO BLEACHING THROUGH MICROBIOME MANIPULATION”

Raquel is an Associate Professor in Molecular Microbial Ecology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and has spent most of the last year on sabbatical at UC Davis working with Jonathan Eisen

About Jonathan Eisen

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
