We are pleased to announce the second Virus Genomics and Evolution conference. This meeting will provide a multidisciplinary forum for scientists interested in the genomics and evolutionary analysis of viruses and will address the fundamental questions of viral origins, transmission and pathogenesis.

Virus genome sequencing is now widespread and the conference will showcase advances in viral genomics, bioinformatics and sequencing technology. Genomic studies have provided major insights into the epidemiology transmission and pathogenesis of viral infections, and are increasingly being applied to patient management and public health. The conference will cover the genomics of epidemic and non-epidemic viruses, emerging viral infections and pathogen discovery.

This meeting will bring together international participants working in diagnostic and public health, who are generating data from clinical samples, with evolutionary biologists and bioinformaticians, who are developing methods and models to interrogate the genomic data.

We welcome the submission of abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the submitted abstracts.

Further information will be available shortly.  Please email the conference organiser to register your interest in this meeting.
