#AAASMoBE AAAS Meeting on Microbiomes of the Built Environment
Twitter notes and some web links regarding the meeting "Microbiomes of the Built Environment" that happened March 27, 2014 in Washington DC. Meeting was run by AAAS and sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Microbes (living organisms so small we cannot see them without magnification) play fundamental roles in every aspect of life on this planet. Recently, enormous effort has gone into characterizing the microbes in the outdoor world (from the bottom of the oceans to the upper reaches of the atmosphere) as well as those in our "inner world" (the microbes living in and on plants and animals including us).
Tomorrow all day there will be a meeting at AAAS HQ on " Microbiomes of the Built Environment". I will be speaking at the meeting, and this is one of my major research areas, so I am a bit biased, but the meeting is going to be great I think.
