DOE JGI User meeting 3/22-24

The DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) 11th Annual Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting, March 22-24, 2016, will bring together about 450 researchers from over 75 different institutions from all over the world to this vibrant scientific gathering in Walnut Creek, California. Presentation topics include: Microbial genomics, fungal genomics, metagenomics, and plant genomics; genome editing, secondary metabolites, pathway engineering, synthetic biology, high-throughput functional genomics, and high-performance computing applications. Additional short talks will be selected from poster abstracts. Abstracts are due March 7, 2016. The list of confirmed speakers has been posted here. Register now. Workshops precede the main meeting on Fungal Genomics, NERSC: Reproducible Bioinformatics Pipelines, Synthetic Biology, Genomic Technologies, Sample QC, and KBase.

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
