CeMEB Assembly

I have spent the last 3 glorious days in Tjarno, Sweden at the CeMEB assembly.  CeMEB is the Center for Marine Evolutionary Biology, a center that I have recently joined here at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.  The center is a Linnaeus Center of Excellence and I saw a lot of excellent science at the meeting.  I look forward to continuing to interact and collaborate with this group.  I presented some of the current research being done by Chris Dejong, an MSc student and bioinformatician in our group.  The talk on cytochrome P450 genes in the sand goby was well received. Congratulations Chris on some very nice work!

The meeting was held at the Sven Loven Marine Station and it is an impressive facility, one of two marine stations for GU.  They are very lucky to have such great infrastructure at the university.
