The world-renowned anthrax expert from Northern Arizona University, Dr. Paul S. Keim will present a lecture on the genetic analysis of anthrax on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Indiana Convention Center, Sagamore Ballroom 3, second floor.

Dr. Keim was tapped by the federal government last fall to identify and analyze the anthrax strains used in the terrorist mailings. His presentation will be held as part of the Annual Meetings of the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America in Indianapolis, IN, Nov. 10-14. The Betty Klepper Endowed Lectureship will feature Dr. Keim's presentation, "Pathogen Geonomics: Applications to Epidemiology, Evolution and Forensic Analysis," and begins at 7:25pm, followed by a discussion.

Paul S. Keim, Ph.D., is the Cowden Endowed Chair in Microbiology at Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ, and an affiliate researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory. His research focuses on high-resolution DNA analysis for identification of bacterial pathogens, including anthrax.

The lecture is funded through the Agronomic Science Foundation (ASF) by Betty Klepper.
