  4. 4. The Microbiology of the Built Environment Network http://microBE.net Jonathan A. Eisen UC Davis @phylogenomicsTuesday, June 26, 12
  5. 5. Microbes in the Built Environment: Why Care? • The BE is a large part of our niche • Buildings, planes, cars, etc. • The BE can be considered a model system for studying microbial ecology and diversity • defined components • controllable inputs and outputs • many replicates possible • Microbes in the BE likely influence • Human health • Human microbiome • BE ecologyTuesday, June 26, 12
  6. 6. History • Interest in microbes in the built environment is nothing new • Most focus historically has been: • on pathogens • done using culturing • New approaches possible • culture independent (e.g., DNA sequencing) • rapid decreases in cost / difficulty • also applies to culture-based studiesTuesday, June 26, 12
  7. 7. But ...Tuesday, June 26, 12
  8. 8. But ... • Culture independent approaches have taken off in many areas of microbial studies • Ocean microbiology • Human microbiome • Genomics taken off too • Microbes of phylogenetic, economic, health, ecological interest • But ... • Not been so fast an uptake in BE studiesTuesday, June 26, 12
