Genomes of Microbiomes

When:
September 15, 2022 – September 19, 2022 all-day
2022-09-15T00:00:00+02:00

Where:
Birmingham, UK

Genomes of Microbiomes will provide a forum for discussion of the impact of MAGs, including how they should be incorporated into public databases, metagenomics advances in general, and the contributions technologies are making toward more readily achieving complete microbial genome sequence assemblies.

Join us to:

  • Discuss how advances in sequencing technologies and computational methods can be best exploited to understand the microbial world.
  • Redefine our understanding of evolution and microbial diversity using metagenomics and metagenome assembled genomes.
  • Explore wider issues around obtaining genomes from microbial communities, including viruses, archaea, bacteria, and microbial eukaryotes, and how this data can contribute and be enhanced.

This focused meeting will be an excellent opportunity for those working in the field to network and to build upon and establish collaborations.

Early Bird Registration Deadline: 4 August 2022.

EVBC members involved:
  • Evelien Adriaenssens (organising committee, speaker)
