On December 11th there will be an art science and technology art show titled ORGANISM. This is a two part show. One part will have artworks created by both artists and scientists. Participating scientists include ; Ciera Martinez, Anna Davidson , Brad Townsly, Dan Chitwood and Diane Ullman. Some Artists include: Daniel Brickman, May Wilson, Evan Clayburg, Daniel Mendoza, Sarah Julig, Dylan Wright, Donna Billick and Emily Schleiner.
Part two of the show will feature students form the Entomology 1 class which is housed in the Art Science Fusion program at UC Davis. These fifteen students have been writing curious tales about insects and illustrating those stories through their art pieces. The concept behind their art pieces is based on Cabinets of curiosities, a pre-linneaus collection of curiosities that were made popular among the affluent in 14th and 15th century Europe.
During this show you will experience glow in-the-dark organisms, art made of fungus, bones, and snakes…… large scale installation, live performance, sound art and tales about insects that are so curious they are almost unbelievable!

Practical Applications of Metabolomics

9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, CA
Practical Applications of Metabolomics
Metabolomics, the global profiling of biochemicals and metabolites, has broad applications in understanding complex biological systems. As metabolomics platforms have become more robust, applications of the technology have moved from basic research in university labs to solving practical problems in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and consumer products industries.
The half-day workshop provides an overview of the current state of metabolomics and how the technology has been applied to solve a variety of problems including:
Understanding disease mechanism and identifying biomarkers
Elucidating mechanism-of-action of a drug/ingredient
Unraveling off-target effects of a drug/ingredient
Profiling biochemical changes for bioprocess/fermentation optimization
