The preliminary program is out for the 2013 meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, to be held May 18-21 in Denver, Colorado.
I'm very to excited to announce two awesome sessions being led by the Eisen lab. First is the session I'm co-convening, entitled "Phylogenomics and Microbial Species Concepts" (session dates and description below). The second session is "Citizen Microbiology: Enhancing Microbiology Education and Research with the Help of the Public", led by Jonathan Eisen and David Coil.
The abstract submission deadline just been extended to Thursday, January 17th - consider submitting to these two awesome sessions if you're vying for a talk!
