Carl Zimmer’s Keynote Address at the 2012 JGI Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting

I’ve been having some issues with posts because my server was hacked into again.  I don’t know what is so interesting to anyone trying to break in and leave malware.  So, I apologize.  I’m getting back into the swing of things and trying to fix some problems after a couple weeks of travel.

I recently returned from the 7th Annual DOE-Joint Genome Institute User Meeting on the Genomics of Energy and the Environment.  The keynote address by Carl Zimmer has been posted online:

2012 Workshop Series in Microbial Genomics & Metagenomics at JGI

There’s another series of workshops for both microbial genomics and metagenomics presented by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute in 2012.   These workshops include two days of seminars and three days of hands-on tutorials for both microbial genomics and metagenomics.  These workshops are centered on the use of the following bioinformatic tools: IMG, IMG/M, IMG-ER, IMG-EDU, VISTA, GREENGENES and ARB.  Registration for this workshop can be found here.

JGI’s Microbial Genomics & Metagenomics Workshops

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute has offered numerous workshops for both microbial genomics and metagenomics over the past two years, and registration for the last workshop for 2011 is now open.  This last five day workshop of 2011 includes two days of seminars and three days of hands-on tutorials for both microbial genomics and metagenomic and using the following bioinformatic tools: IMG, IMG/M, IMG-ER, IMG-EDU, VISTA, GREENGENES and ARB.  Registration for this workshop can be found here.
