This was my first time at the Lake Arrowhead Microbial Genomics meeting, and it was excellent! There were tons of great talks, friendly people and a beautiful location. Plus the food was fantastic, and the beer and wine were free (Jeffery Miller was insistant that this was important).
Earlier this week, I got an e-mail from Lucia Santamaria from the “ Gender Gap in Science” project from the International Council for Science. They are trying to systematically measure the gender gap in a number of ways, including looking at publication records.
