The JGI User Executive Committee (UEC) represents the JGI user community and is responsible for providing input and advice on JGI policies and practices that affect users and their access to technical capabilities JGI offers, as well as proposal review procedures and the organization of the JGI Annual Meeting. Any investigator who has been an active user of the JGI at any time in the past two fiscal years is eligible for election to the UEC. Members serve three-year terms and can serve no more than two consecutive terms.
In September, the JGI launched a solicitation for nominations for three additional positions on the UEC. Seventeen JGI users were nominated, representing a breadth of institutions, research topics and career stages. The election period concluded on October 21.
The results are in and JGI extends a warm welcome to the three new UEC members. They are: Kathleen Greenham of the University of Minnesota, Matthias Hess of the University of California, Davis and Kristen DeAngelis of University of Massachusetts-Amherst, who represent the scientific areas of plant genomics, DNA synthesis and metabolomics, respectively.
