Just a quick one here. I was reminded recently about an interesting publication about metagenomics education in which some people might be interested. It is by Anne Jurkowski, Ann Reid and Jay Lebov and was published in a journal called CBE Life Sciences Education. This journal, though not fully Open Access is freely available online.
I think the article is a useful callto arms for educators to get ahead of the curve and to start thinking about ways to teach metagenomics BEFORE it becomes an old field (i.e, while it is hot, and who knows how long that will last).
