What's a Poop MOOC?  Well, it's our new, FREE, massive open online course that will begin Oct. 6th and run for 6 weeks.  Rob Knight, Katie Amato, and I will walk you through the basics of microbiome research with four short lectures a week, which are accompanied by interviews from the experts in the field.  Our star-studded cast of interviewees includes Jack Gilbert (amazing to interview), Martin Blaser (new book out: Missing Microbes), and Michael Pollan (too many awesome books to list, and one of our most active American Gut participants), just to name a few...  

We are currently about 2/3 finished filming our lectures, and it has been a great experience so far.  I never thought I would do a photo shoot with giant fuzzy microbes (to illustrate Katie's alpha diversity lecture).
