We will be hosting mothur and R workshops throughout 2018. Learn more.
I am Pat Schloss, Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at the University of Michigan. I am also the PI on the mothur software development project. You can learn more about me and my lab at our homepage.
The picture in the upper left corner of every mothur is my wife, Sarah. She is inoculating our son, John, with his microbiome on the day of his birth (4/30/2007). Sarah and I have four kids - Mary (8; dotur), Patrick (6; sons), Joseph (4; sons), and John (2; sons). None of them are particularly adept at climbing trees, but John is quite proficient at shuffling the books at the local library. mothur is dedicated to my mom, Cindy Schloss (4/8/1953-4/9/2003) and to Sarah.
