Jonathan and I tried our best to liveblog JGI meeting today. I ended up running out of battery during Joe Ecker’s talk (which was great, full of data!) and full of. The day continued with a talk from Dick Smith on proteomics, mostly focused on methodology. Of course these talks are supposed to be overviews and to some extent a JGI cheerleading to what interesting new projects can be addressed by the institute. Day finished with keynote from Chris Somerville from EBI (no not that EBI) and UC Berkeley on cellulosic biofuels. Some very cool stuff but to some extent showcasing the different avenues of feed stock, chemistry, and biofermentation approaches that are being explored.
Here’s a friendfeed room so we can be more organized tomorrow.
