Congrats to the lab for a great Fungal Genetics meeting. Everyone was participating in the meeting, presenting their work, and hearing about the new things coming out in other research laboratories. Was exhausting pace with 8AM to 10 PM (or later) every day but I think the fun and science excitement overshadowed the tiredness. Congratulations to [...]
Talks from the Sloan Foundation sponsored session at Lake Arrowhead meeting on Microbiology of the Built Environment are now posted on Microbe.net (which was jokingly pronounced as micro-beignet by some) including my talk on fungi in the Built environment. Go take a look if you want to see an overview of some of the ways researchers [...]
A wonderful symposium reunion of alumni and current Duke and the RTP area Mycology and pathogenesis labs is being held April 5 & 6 at Duke University. The talks have so far been an interesting collection of model pathogen systems, drug development, and host-pathogen interactions. Tomorrow myself, Tim James, and others will hit the evolutionary biology [...]
I can safely say everyone had a good time at Fungal Genetics at the Asilomar Conference Grounds earlier this month. So much fun it too us a week to catch up on sleep and dig out from work left undone.
Here are a few pictures from poster presentations. We didn’t get everyone’s picture captured in the [...]
Spring is flying along. We’ve been presenting some of our work at conferences and getting ready for a full summer of meetings and Divya preparing for her qualifying exam.
A few papers have come out or are now accepted. One I’ll highlight here is the publication of the Sordaria macrospora genome. This was a fun collaboration with [...]
Although I’m not going to be at PAG this year, I’ll be in San Diego for the BioPerl and part of the GMOD meeting on Wed [...]
Back from an excellent meeting in St Feliu du Guixols for the EMBO Comparative Genomics of Eukaryotic Microorganisms. Not a strictly fungi focused meeting, but lots of genome comparisons of yeasts and molds were presented. It will be held again in 2 years so mark your calendars as it is a great scientific exchange and a [...]
My presentation from BSA/MSA 2009 on early fungal evolution inferred from the chytrid genome is available here. The conference was great for the time I could be there and the interaction with mycologists and botanists at the meeting seemed to be really helpful (I caught a few botany talks) and catching up with new and old [...]
I will be at the Botany & Mycology conference (mainly to see the MSA members) and present a talk on Tuesday morning of the meeting. Hope to run into some old friends and meet new people at the meeting which will see Botanists and Mycologists mixing (oh my). I get to stop by Univ of Utah [...]
Live blogging JGI User meeting where the talks range from application of sequencing to problems in biofuels, comparative genomics and evolution, and the discussion of new sequencing technologies.
Here are some links from Day 1. We’ll probably have the rest of the days’ coverage in the Friend Feed Room.
