At SciFoo this year, Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) and I had a chance to visit a few times and discuss everything from the molecular biology of bacteria, to birding, and meat free burgers.

Jonathan is an evolutionary biologist at UC Davis who’s work is focused upon and largely responsible for the field of evolutionary reconstructions of microbial genomes.  Jonathan is also a remarkable advocate in the science Twitter community for open source research and one of the people on Twitter who’s posts I often look forward to.

Thanks Jonathan.  I’ll look forward to our next opportunity to visit, in person.
