ABOUT THE BLOGWelcome to "Prophage", the blog all about bacteria, phages (bacterial viruses), computers, and science! The three goals of this blog are to provide thoughtful discussions about current scientific topics and literature, to offer insight into the life of a biomedical scientist by outlining some of my own experiences, and to supply interesting and helpful resources that others will find useful. I am doing this by posting essays, thoughts, notes and ideas every few days. By keeping the focus of Prophage broad, I will continue to write about what I find interesting, and continue to introduce you to new and exciting topics. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
ABOUT THE BLOGGERMy name is Geoffrey Hannigan and I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan Medical School (Go Blue!). I am currently training in the lab of Pat Schloss, and my research interests are in the gut microbiome and virome. My research is mostly driven by high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics.
My goal in this blog is to bring some of my knowledge of genetics, DNA sequencing, microbiology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics to the worldwide community, and to offer some interesting insights and perspectives on the topics I write about. To learn more about me, check out my personal website or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
