This week I visited the Human Microbiome Congress in San Diego, where Kisaco Research brought together a splendid group of academic and industry researchers, who talked about their latest research. I really enjoyed listening to all these great speakers, and wanted to share this great event with the rest of the world, so I live-tweeted all the talks from my Twitter account @MicrobiomDigest. In case you missed it, here is a Storify with all my ~400 tweets. So grab a beer and some popcorn, and enjoy.

We also held a 500WomenScientists meeting organized by Jessica Metcalf (who tweeted the first photo below).

Elisabeth M. Bik

Science Editor, uBiome

After receiving my PhD at Utrecht University in The Netherlands, I worked at the Dutch National Institute for Health and the St. Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein. From 2001-2016 I worked in the laboratory of David Relman at Stanford University, where I have worked on the characterization of human oral, gastric, and intestinal microbiotas, and that of marine mammals. In 2016 I joined uBiome where we allow citizen scientists to sequence their microbiome. I also run Microbiome Digest, www.microbiomedigest.com, an almost daily compilation of scientific papers in the rapidly growing microbiome field, tweet on Twitter as @MicrobiomDigest, and scan published papers for image manipulation.
