After a successful summer, I’m happy to report that we will continue the Microbiome Working Group come September. We have had participation from multiple labs across many Departments, tackling big questions from laboratory contamination to large-scale bioinformatic analysis.
This Group is a weekly, drop-in hour with the goal of bringing microbiome researchers together from different laboratories and backgrounds to help and guide each other. This isn’t another meeting; bring your laptop to get advice where you’re stuck, or draw out your newest idea on the whiteboard to get some peer-review before the real peer-review.
Please note the new time and location: the Microbiome Working Group will occur Tuesdays at 3:30pm in the Farncombe Conference Room (enter the Farncombe Institute, follow the walkway around the cubicles to the very back of the area). Students, postdocs, PIs etc., human microbiome or otherwise, everyone is welcome!
