Dr. Meyer builds research software to study microbial communities.
His research interests include microbial ecology, distributed high performance computing and big data. He leads the MG-RAST project, providing what is currently the most widely used metagenomics and metatranscriptomics analysis platform with. MG-RAST has analyzed over 130,000 data sets analyzed in early 2014 making it the largest collection of metagenomic data in existence.
In the past he has worked on the GenDB and RAST projects. He is a board member of the Genomics Standards Consortium and a founding member of the Earth Microbiome Project (EMP).
