SPOTLIGHT ON KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Dr Tanja Woyke Joint Genome Institute, USA

drtanywayke.jpg After studying the mechanism of action of antifungal natural products and their derivatives during her Ph.D. in Microbiology at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen (Germany), Dr.Woyke pursued her postdoctoral research at the JGI in 2004. The main object of her research was the symbiont community of a gutless oligochaete for which she deciphered function and host-symbiont interplay using metagenomics. Taking on a Research Scientist position in 2007, she switched gears from metagenomics to single-cell genomics, which is now her primary interest and passion. Dr.Woyke stepped into the microbial genomics program lead position in 2009.
