Paul is excited to attend the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) Advanced Research Courses in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. He will join two courses: Workshop on Molecular Evolution (July 20-29, 2015) and Strategies and Techniques for Analyzing Microbial Population Structures (August 5-15, 2015).
In 2002, Yan attended the Microbial Biodiversity Course back when he was a Ph.D. student in Ford Doolittle's lab (Dalhousie University).
MBL is an affiliate of the University of Chicago. The workshop is supported by grants from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and the National Institutes of Health.
