Dr. Bart Weimer

Dr. Bart Weimer is Professor and Department Chair in the Department of Population Health and Reproduction in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. He obtained a BS in Microbiology/Immunology from the University of Arizona and a Ph.D. from Utah State University, and post-doctoral training at the University of Melbourne. His group embraces a systems biology approach using large-scale genomic and metabolomic analysis to study the link between food, health and the microbiome using microbial physiology concepts. His group leads the 100K Pathogen Genome Sequencing Project to link agriculture, the environment, and human disease. Dr. Weimer's research also encompasses population genomics of bacteria to examine persistence and metabolism. He has mentored 35 graduate students, published over 160 manuscripts, obtained six patents, and edited four books.
