Description
 
JOIN US April 3 - 5, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain!


Hosted by the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) and the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Next-generation sequencing conference covers a broad range of topics in genome sequencing and analysis. Our particular focus areas in 2017 are structural variation and population genomics.

New sequencing technologies have opened up the possibility to sequence genomes at a previously unprecedented scale. The sequencing of whole genomes from large number of individuals representing multiple populations allows the extent of genetic diversity, of both at the single nucleotide level, and of larger structural variants, to be catalogued. Using such data the genetic basis of evolutionary and disease processes can be explored. The meeting will draw together researchers from diverse backgrounds who develop and apply novel tools to sequencing data. Topics covered will include, but are not limited to, genome assembly, variant characterization and analysis, gene expression, population history, disease, and more!

The conference program will be a combination of keynote talks from renown scientists with research focusing on structural variation and population genomics, a selection of thought-provoking submitted abstract talks, technology and applications talks, as well as posters.
