An exciting preprint paper about solving problematic bacterial genome assemblies with the fabulous PI Dr. Christian Ahrens and Michal Schmid at Agroscope, CH, is now available at BioRxiv
We had a great time in Auckland at the NZMEC 5. First of all the Mexican restaurant we found served plenty of wonderful vegetarian food and gluten free food to satisfy everyone in the group. Secondly, the ~100 participant symposium was wonderful (!), a great platform to network and to show off our own science. Erica, Rudolf, Simi and Michal presented their posters and I was invited to present some of the new stuff that we are currently working on.
We cleaned our little lab empire - good reason to finally take a picture of our group. Also, afterwards we binge ate Indian food... hmmm Indian...
