Adam Rivers has experience applying a range of microbiome and metagenomics methods to diverse microbial systems. As head of the metagenome program at the Joint Genome Institute, he oversaw the sequencing and analysis of 1500 metagenomes/metatranscriptomes and 10,000 amplicon samples annually for approximately 150 different users. He implemented process improvements for amplicon and viral sequencing and conducted research applying machine learning methods to viral metagenomics. Prior to that he worked on the bacterial metatranscriptomics, transciptomics and genomics of marine bacteria. Projects included determining the metabolic response of bacteria to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and discovering small RNA’s through transcriptome sequencing. He joined GBRU in early 2017.
