A stack of papers facedown on a table.

10 publications in 2019!!!

2019 has been a hectic year for my career, but I managed to turn lemons into peer-reviewed lemonade. For the first half of the year, my primary focus was writing and submitting manuscripts on a backlog of work. And it’s paid off, I have had 10 things accepted for publication this year! I don’t expect to repeat this feat, this was the culmination of many projects over the last 5 years which matriculated all at once. But, it feels great to be able to do it once.

The Hungate 1000 Project is now published!

The Hungate 1000 Project was a massive undertaking: namely, sequencing the genome of 1000 microorganisms cultured from ruminant animals all over the world, and was both  coordinated and led by the Rumen Microbial Genomics Network.  After years of hard work by some incredible researchers, the Hungate 1000 has just been published in the Nature Biotechnology Journal! The […]
