Who is CMiC for?
Researchers from foundational research to application-driven science spanning academia, industry, and government labs will find much to love in the CMiC program. Chaired by Elisha M Wood-Charlson, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and co-chaired by current SIMB President Nigel Mouncey, DOE Joint Genome Institute, topics under consideration by the program committee include:
- Biodiversity and Ecology
- Bioinformatics and Machine Learning
- Engineering Microbiomes for Human and Ecosystem Health
- Microbiomes and the Bioeconomy
- Microbiome Policy, Advocacy, and Regulation
With four days of traditional sessions intermixed with non-traditional sessions such as panels, flash talks, or community-led discussions, CMiC aims to create a welcoming environment that encourages open, honest dialogue and fosters intriguing new ideas for collaboration across systems.
Industry, academic, and government researchers as well as technology developers, bioinformaticians, policymakers, advocacy leaders, regulators, and others working on and interested in studying and manipulating the microbiome in industrial settings are all encouraged to sign up for email updates about CMiC here and stay tuned as we release new information and invite people to participate in the program.
