Short Biography of Author
|Prof. Dr. Bart C. Weimer is the Chair and Professor of Microbiology in the Department of Population Health and Reproduction within the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis, CA, USA. His research is focused on the intersection of food, health, and the microbiome using bacterial population genomics. Included in his research direction is the use of systems biology, population genomics, and machine learning to examine the role of bacteria to be bioactive. He leads the 100K Pathogen Genome Sequencing Project, which enables reference genomics for surveillance, population evolution, and metagenomic studies. He is active in various international organizations for microbiology including the American Society for Microbiology. His lab is fortunate to receive extensive funding from many sources that seek to impact the global condition impacted by bacteria. Dr. Weimer has a leadership role in microbial genomics and bacterial physiology that brings about collaborations at the interface of adjacent fields with the aim of bringing new ideas into microbiology so as to leverage new approaches to study critical questions within bacterial growth, evolution, and persistence in humans, animals, plants, and the environment broadly. He has trained over 45 students, published over 190 peer-reviewed papers that are broadly cited, and has been awarded multiple patents related to bacteria and their ability to change our environment. He participates in multiple editorial boards within microbiology, genomics, and infectious disease.|
