Social media

We would love for you to use your social media presence to spread the word about the great community here at the BIOME Institute and what you are gaining and learning throughout the institute. For those who cannot make it to our workshop, follow our tag  as a “conference backchannel” where you can interact with participants and see what cool things are going on!

If you would like to share your "Institute environment" with others, please upload photos to our shared Google photo albums (coming soon!) 

Presenter opt-out policy: Because we operate with a philosophy toward open education and open science, our default is to share ideas and insights freely with the wider community via social media. However, if you are presenting unpublished work or do not want your image to be used, please specify this in a slide at the beginning of your presentation.

Attendees: When using social media with reference to the BIOME, the hashtag is  and you can tag BioQUEST,(@BioQUESTed) or QUBES (@QUBESHub) on Twitter. Also consider hashtagging relevant keywords in posts such as #modeling #STEMed.

For those who are new to social media, but want to join in: keep posts short (less than 140 characters), hashtag and @ posts appropriately, keep mindful of opt-out policies, and share lots of pictures and insights!  If you need any help getting started, talk to Caitlin, our communications manager.

To keep apprised of community happenings after the conference, follow QUBES and BioQUEST on Facebook, join the BioQUEST group on Facebook, follow QUBES (@qubeshub) and BioQUEST (@BioQUESTed) on Twitter, and opt-in to the QUBES Newsletter
