Come see what it is like to do disease surveillance and study biodiversity through the lens of genomics. Take a tour to understand what it is like to work with big cats, primates, birds, bats, frogs, snakes and many other kinds of animals. See a first hand account illustrating the habitat loss endangering these ecosystems as well as the dangers scientists put themselves in when doing this important work.
Blacki Migliozzi is an amateur biologist who has learned to do biology through DY makerspaces like Biotech Without Borders and Genspace. In the past he has competed multiple times and won several of the top prizes at the International Genetically Engineered Machines competition. More recently he has spent several field seasons doing genomics work in the jungles of Central and South America.
