Group Conference Call (Pollard & Eisen labs)

  • First skype conference call. After some glitches, worked great for multiple party calls.
  • Progress Report
  • Genevieve Erwin (Pollard lab grad student collaborator) talked about human microbiome project ideas
    • NSF grant proposal
    • Possible Genographic collaboration
  • Discussion of issues with organism based analysis of human microbiome
    • for the most part, we don't know which organisms are pathogenic, neutral, beneficial
    • Pathway based analyses over come this problem, but are misleading if the components of the pathway are not all in the same cell
