EAG Ambassador in Woods Hole

Sep 18, 2015 No Comments by 1412 views

S1   Thanks to the support from the European Association of Geochemistry I was able to attend the Molecular Evolution workshop which took place from the 19th to 29th of July at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Woods Hole is a very picturesque place at the extreme southwest corner of Cape Cod and the site of a large number of marine science institutions.

Now in its 28th year, the Molecular Evolution workshop is well established and bringing together wet lab people, theoreticians and software developers from various backgrounds and career levels interested in contemporary topics in molecular evolution. It was a great platform to meet people with similar research questions but from very different scientific communities and to exchange ideas and learn from each other.

S2My research is about the microbiology and biogeochemistry of Arctic glacial surfaces and the workshop was addressing a wide spread of topics that are important to answer my research questions and were including phylogenetics, population genetics and comparative genomics.

All in all ten very inspiring days and I would like to thank the EAG for giving me this opportunity that allowed me to expand my knowledge and scientific network. I was very happy to promote EAG and I highly recommend the EAG ambassador program to my fellow early career scientists.
