Presentation: The Metagenomic and Metadesign of Subways and Urban Biomes

  • How can we improve city utilization and planning through the detection, measurement, and design of metagenomics within urban environments?
  • How can these baseline profiles be used to identify potential bio-threats, and provide an additional level of data, that can even aid in Smart City Capabilities?
