At the AAAS Meeting in Vancouver in February there was a session focusing on “The Earth Microbiome Project” and related topics. The session was organized by Jack Gilbert and had a series of talks that may be of interest to those concerned about the microbiology of the built environment. I gave a talk in the session on “A Field Guide to the Microbes” for which the built environment is a key component.
I will try and post more details about the meeting but for know some may be interested in the “Storification” notes I made based upon twitter posts for the session. The storification is below.
UPDATE January 2019
Storify is no longer in existence. Fortunately we were able to convert the Storify summary to one via Wakelet.
