Lake Arrowhead Microbial Genomics
September 16, 2018 - September 20, 2018
This conference is part of a yearly meeting initiated in 1991 to bring together genome sequencers, bioinformatics specialists, biologists, and geneticists, to forge interactions that would result in meaningful functional genomics.
The goal of the meeting is to translate the influx of new genome sequencing information into useful biological studies.
The Lake Arrowhead 2018 meeting will have a major focus on microbial communities, the human microbiome, pathogens, and genome evolution. This year's meeting will cover micro-organisms for which extensive analyses exist, and those for which new biological and technical strategies are being developed. The focus on biodiversity, the human microbiome, pathogenic organisms, and bioenergentics adds special significance to this meeting. This meeting is designed to have a mix of invited presentations and poster sessions.
