Saturday, April 6
of the AMERICAN SOCIETY for MICROBIOLOGY
About our Speakers . . .
Our ASM Foundation Speaker is DR. CLAIRE M. FRASER, Director and President of The Institute for Genomic Research. Dr. Fraser will address the topic: "Microbial Genome Sequencing". The completion of more than 20 microbial genome sequencing projects has provided a new starting point for understanding microbial biology, the interaction of pathogens and hosts, and the evolution of microbial species.
DR. CLAIRE FRASER is President and Director of The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in Rockville, MD. She was formerly the Director of the Department of Microbial Genomics and Vice-President of Research at TIGR. TIGR is devoted to the sequencing and functional analysis of human, animal, plant, and microbial genomes to better understand the role that genes play in development, evolution, physiology and disease.
She earned her B.S. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and her Ph.D. from State University of New York at Buffalo. Throughout much of her early career, Dr. Fraser's interests focused on the structure and function of G protein-coupled receptors. At TIGR, she was initially involved in studies to elucidate differences in gene expression in human tumors and matched normal tissues and in using a genomic-based approach to understand the molecular basis of tumor development. More recently, Dr. Fraser has been involved in whole genome sequence analysis of microbial genomes, leading the teams that sequenced the genomes of Mycoplasma genitalium, the smallest genome of any known free-living organism, the two spirochetes, Treponema pallidum and Borrelia burgdorferi, and two species of Chlamydia.
Dr. Fraser has over 130 publications
in leading scientific journals, is a reviewer for nine journals, has edited
two volumes in the Receptor Biochemistry and Methodology series
on neurotransmitter receptors, was previously an editor for the International
Encyclopedia of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and is currently serving
on the Editorial Board of The Journal of Biological Chemistry and Comparative
and Microbial Genomics. She was selected as one of Maryland's
Top 100 Women in 1997 and was awarded the 1998 Computerworld Smithsonian
Award for Innovation in Information Technology and the 1999 IMAS Award
from The Institute for Mathematics and Advanced Supercomputing for outstanding
achievements in the field of algorithms and their computer implementation.
Dr. Richard Lenski,Hannah Professor, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University, will speak on: "DYNAMICS OF PHENOTYPIC AND GENOMIC EVOLUTION: A 20,000-GENERATION EXPERIMENT WITH ESCHERICHIA COLI".
DR. RICHARD LENSKI earned a BA from Oberlin College and his Ph.D. in 1982 from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He was an Associate Professor at University of California - Irvine before taking his current Hannah Professorship at MSU in 1991. Dr. Lenski is a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology and was a 1996 MacArthur Fellow. He has over 130 publications in a wide variety of prestigous journals, including PNAS, Nature, Evolution, Science, and Microbial Ecology.
From his web site, Rich tells
us: "I am interested in the ecological processes and genetic mechanisms
that cause evolutionary change. I study microorganisms in order to take
advantage of their rapid generations and large populations, which make
it feasible to test evolutionary hypotheses by direct
"In one project that has been
on-going for more than ten years, my students and I are
"In other projects, we use bacteria
and the viruses and plasmids that infect them as model
Dr. Thomas S. Whittam, Hannah Professor, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University and faculty member of the National Food Safety and Toxicology Center at MSU. Dr. Whittam will speak on "THE MOLECULAR EVOLUTION OF BACTERIAL PATHOGENS".
WHITTAM earned his BA from Franklin & Marshall College and his
Ph.D. in 1981 from the University of Arizona. From his web site, he tells
us about his research interests:
of pathogenic forms of E. coli
evolution of pathogen virulence and host resistance

PARKING: Parking locations (ramps and surface lots) are indicated on the MSU campus map. On Saturdays, several additional resident parking lots are open to visitors.
The Michigan ASM encourages students (both undergrads and graduate students), as well as faculty and other professional microbiologists, to present posters at our fall and spring meetings. Ideally a poster presentation would relate to the general theme of the conference, but that is not a criterion for submission. If you would like to present a poster of your research at this MI-ASM CONFERENCE, follow the guidelines below.
who present a poster do not pay the conference registration fee
