This 16th Genome Informatics conference will focus on large-scale approaches to understanding the structure and biology of genomes. Biology is an experimental science that is experiencing an explosion of new data. This requires biologists to increase the scale and sophistication of the information technology used for their research.
The conference scope encompasses a wide range of methods for the analysis of these data, including a focus on technologies such as variant-calling, transcriptomic analysis, and variant interpretation, applied to very large genomic data sets. This meeting alternates between Hinxton, UK and Cold Spring Harbor, New York.
