Exploration of Earth’s biological diversity has accelerated in recent history because of advances in genomics technologies. This acceleration is due to the combined application of 1) high-throughput molecular sequencing techniques to generate massive catalogs of DNA (and other) sequence data and 2) advances in computational tools and workflows enabling findable, accessible, interoperable, and reproducible biological research. This presentation brings together my experience with deep subseafloor microbiology and computational tools and highlights aquatic and biological science opportunities for the computationally-inclined.

Biography of Speaker

Sean Jungbluth's primary appointment is as a research scientist in the Environmental Genomics and System Biology division at the DOE Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Since July 2022, he’s been an Adjunct Professor of Biology at San Francisco State University. His focus on the System Biology Knowledge Base (KBase) team is on the interface of microbiology, environmental sciences, molecular sequencing, and computational biology where he works on developing software that enables and accelerates research outcomes across diverse fields of biological sciences. Sean received his BS in microbiology from the University of Wisconsin and PhD in biological oceanography from the University of Hawaii.
