Genomes of Microbiomes – a view from Twitter
Posted on September 28, 2022 by Priya Gurung
Genomes of Microbiomes took place on 15–16 September 2022 at the Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre, Birmingham, UK. In this blog, we take a look at the highlights on Twitter.
With a full scientific programme prepared to address the latest advances in metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) research, we were looking forward to hearing from renowned invited speakers and offered paper presenters from across the world, showcasing the latest research!
We were pleased to see our delegates were just as excited to attend, especially as some were travelling internationally.
All caffeine up and ready for the journey to Birmingham for the #GenomesMicrobiome22! pic.twitter.com/fkBXHv4zwy— Duncan Ng (@duncan_ng) September 14, 2022
Sad to leave #EMBOTB2022 early, great talks and interactions, but gotta rush home and then to Birmingham for #genomesmicrobiome22 with @DrATedder and @fstandeven193! First microbiome conference in a decade, very excited.— Conor Meehan (@con_meehan) September 14, 2022
Excited for 2 days of cool genomics talks and to be away from my laptop and all the screens #GenomesMicrobiome22— A persistent organism (@DrMarwa_Hassan) September 15, 2022
The scientific sessions at #GenomesMicrobiome22 were designed to give delegates a forum for discussion on the impact of MAGs. The programme featured talks from invited speakers from across the world, an excellent opportunity for those working in the field to network and to build upon and establish collaborations.

Alexandre Almeida sharing that although we are 99.9% genetically similar to each other, our gut microbiomes are >80% different.— Lori Snyder (@DrLoriSnyder) September 15, 2022
And for my fellow annotation junkies out there ~40% hypotheticals (still) and loads of diversity yet to be captured. @alexmsalmeida #GenomesMicrobiome22 pic.twitter.com/qx68VkKD5H

Best microbiome sampling in the world, lots of jealous scientists in the room! Would particularly like to sample the whale sharks. #GenomesMicrobiome22 pic.twitter.com/NtQgljIgBH— Evelien Adriaenssens (she/her) (@EvelienAdri) September 15, 2022
The poster sessions showcased the diversity of research within the Genomes of Microbiomes community. Our delegates were able to share their work, and discuss and exchange ideas with one another, giving plenty of opportunities for early career researchers to present their work too.

An amazing time at my first conference #GenomesMicrobiome22 by @MicrobioSoc! Great as a new PhD student to see current research in the field and what methods are being used. 3 others from the @CreeveyLab , @LucyDil_ @LeahO120 @JohnPaulWilkins, and my supervisor @timskvortsov pic.twitter.com/LTJKbAkkv8— Emmet Campbell (@the_phagemage) September 16, 2022
