Theme: Standards-enabled Research in Genomics

The 15th Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC15) meeting will be held at
NIH (Bethesda, Maryland) from April 22-24th. This meeting will
highlight the utilization of genome metadata standards for the
enhancement of our biological understanding of microbes, the interaction
between microbial genomes, human health and disease. GSC15 will provide
a forum for standards developers, genome and metagenome researchers and
biological database developers to discuss their research, initiate
collaborations, join GSC working groups and engage in panel
discussions. The conference will include two days of plenary talks
featuring GSC projects and community standards efforts along with a
keynote speaker, discussion of standards among a government panel and
groups discussion panel. Day 3 of GSC15 will include concurrent GSC

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
