March 13-16, 2018, San Francisco, CA
Join us in San Francisco for the 13th Annual Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, at the Hilton San Francisco in Union Square.
The DOE JGI Genomics of Energy and Environment Meeting
Who Should Attend?
We welcome any and all researchers and students pursuing frontier energy and environmental genomics research. Also, all current JGI Community Science Program (CSP) users, as well as investigators considering an application for future CSP calls. To hear why previous meeting participants have traveled from great distances to join us, please check out this short video.
Workshops to be held Tuesday, March 13 through Wednesday, March 14. The Meeting opening keynote address is at 5pm on Wednesday evening, followed by the poster session. The main sessions take place all day Thursday, March 15 through Friday afternoon, March 16.
Microbial genomics, fungal & algal genomics, metagenomics, and plant genomics; genome editing, secondary metabolites, pathway engineering, synthetic biology, high-throughput functional genomics, high-performance computing applications and societal impact of technological advances. State-of-the-art presentations by invited speakers as well as short talks selected from poster abstracts.
New This Year: The VEGA Symposium
In addition, in parallel with the Meeting, the JGI will be hosting the first ever Viral EcoGenomics and Applications (VEGA) Symposium – Big data approaches to help characterize earth’s Virome. The goals of this one and a half day symposium are to bring together a “viral ecogenomics” community, i.e. experts of viral/phage genetics, structure, ecology, evolution, and (meta)genomics, to foster discussions centered on how to best capture and characterize uncultivated viruses, understand the role of viruses in natural ecosystems, and functionally explore viral genetic diversity.
