Environmental Journal Club happens in STC from 12-1 pm, all are welcome.
This week we will discuss a paper titled "Extensive Unexplored Human Microbiome Diversity Revealed by Over 150,000 Genomes from Metagenomes Spanning Age, Geography, and Lifestyle", and is a nice follow-up to our discussion last time with metagenomes in place of 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing.
The paper can be found here.
Next events: Mar 26, Apr 9.
Come hear WCMR speakers discuss the "Many Metabolisms of Microbes" on Thursday March 21st at 3pm in STC 2002.

See you in STC 2002 at noon.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
