13th Annual Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting

San Francisco, California

3/13/2018 - 3/16/2018

8:30am - 5:00pm

The Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is the leading provider worldwide of genome sequences of plants, fungi and microbes made publically available for developing renewable biofuels and bioproducts, characterizing the diversity resident in complex environments such as soil to protect and nourish plants, and harnessing nature for bioremediation and environmental sustainability strategies.

The DOE Joint Genome Institute's 13th Annual Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting, March 13-16, 2018 in San Francisco features talks by researchers applying the latest omics and synthetic biology strategies to advance innovative science and successes enabled access to JGI's capabilities. Workshops will be held Tuesday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 14. The Meeting Opening Keynote address by Kristala Prather of MIT is followed by the poster session and reception. John Ioannidis of Stanford and Victoria Orphan of Caltech will deliver keynote talks as well. Short talk slots still available to be selected from submitted poster abstracts. Sponsorship opportunities are available too. In parallel, JGI will be hosting the Viral EcoGenomics and Applications (VEGA) Symposium -- Big data approaches to help characterize Earth's Virome, to discuss how to best capture/characterize novel viruses, understand their role in natural ecosystems, and explore viral functional diversity.
