This week I visited the Human Microbiome Congress in San Diego, where Kisaco Research brought together a splendid group of academic and industry researchers, who talked about their latest research. I really enjoyed listening to all these great speakers, and wanted to share this great event with the rest of the world, so I live-tweeted all the talks from my Twitter account @MicrobiomDigest. In case you missed it, here is a Storify with all my ~400 tweets. So grab a beer (or a kombucha) and some popcorn, and enjoy.
We also held a 500WomenScientists meeting organized by Jessica Metcalf (who tweeted the first photo below).
And uBiome was represented at the poster session too! This was the first time I ordered a fabric poster, and it was great. Arrived folded up at my house (sort of like a t-shirt), and fitted easily in my luggage. I could have done a slightly better job ironing it (which is how you get rid of the wrinkles) but it was so much easier than traveling with a glossy print in a big tube. I ordered my poster at MakeSigns; poster + shipping (3 days after ordering) was $120. Recommended!
