I thought this might be of interest to some of the “microbiology of the Built Environment” crowd. I gave a talk at the UC Davis Bodega Bay Marine Lab as part of the Workshop on Applied Phylogenetics on the “Evolution of DNA Sequencing”. I posted the slides to Slideshare and am embedding them here. I tried to record the audio of the talk but something went wrong so am still trying to extract it. But I thought the slides might be of use.
I have tried to label the sources of all images and include links to all sources as well. I hope some find it useful. The slides are downloadable via Slideshare.
