FYI: The Third Annual JGI User Meeting is coming up

JGI_meet_imageHey, just a quick post to let you know about the upcoming user meeting for the Joint Genome Institute, which is occurring March 26-28th in Walnut Creek, CA. I’ve blogged about the JGI’s phenominal Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) resource & that will be discussed as well as LOTS of other interesting stuff. You can check out the meeting announcement & maybe meet some of the OpenHelix gang there!

    Genomics of Energy and Environment–nice title. I wonder if they are going to do that electric eel genome…

    Wouldn’t you feel guilty about flying there though? [wink]

    Hi Mary,

    Not sure if they will mention the electric eel, but I bet they talk about their termite gut metagenome data. How cool would it be if we could harness the power of the microbes in termite guts to effect carbon turnover and biofuel production through ligno-cellulose degradation!
