In January, we met on the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins University for a meeting focused on predictions in microbiome science. More details about the event are available here: http://blog.umd.edu/m3/upcoming-events/january-9-10-2019-m3-meeting-on-predictions-and-the-microbiome/ . The meeting brought together over 130 scientists who participated in a day packed with scientific presentations and active discussions about the current state and future of predictive approaches in microbiome studies. A report summarizing the meeting is available here: M3_brochure_report_2019_final-1zwt9k3 . We are also preparing a manuscript summarizing the key findings of the discussions that took place in the breakout sessions.
Our next M3 meeting will take place on January 9, 2019, followed by a workshop on taxonomic annotation on January 10, 2019. Both events will take place in Baltimore, MD on the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins University.

The meeting report describing the perspectives developed during our January 2018 meeting on Pathogen Detection and Biodefense has appeared in the journal Microbiome: https://microbiomejournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40168-018-0582-5.
The inaugural M3 workshop and conference took place on November 1-2 in College Park, MD.
The workshop was sold out with over 60 people expressing interest.
The conference featured keynote presentations by Maria Giovanni (NIH/NIAID) and Julie Segré (NIH/NHGRI) and attracted over 80 participants from ~20 different institutions.
