Sequencing, Finishing and Analysis in the Future Meeting 2011
Areas emphasized at this conference included:
- New sequencing technologies (454, illumina, SOLiD, Ion Torrent, Pacific Biosciences, etc.)
- Draft sequencing strategies (prokaryotes, eukaryotes, metagenomics, single cell, etc.)
- De novo sequencing, re-sequencing, Human seq., RNA seq., metagenomics, etc.
- Whole genome assemblers and integration of next generation data
- De novo assemblers for short reads, hybrid assemblers
- Recalling and calibrating genome assemblies
- Single cell and metagenomic assemblies
- Finishing systems and pipelines (automated, manual, etc.)
- Next generation finishing tools and technologies
- Human Genomics and genome improvement
- Quality standards for new technologies and mixed data sets
- Single cell / cell sorting and metagenomic finishing
- Genome annotation and pathway identification tools and pipelines
- Comparative genomics, re-sequencing, SNPs, structural variation
- Large scale data management, cloud computing
- Metagenomic analysis
The Sequencing, Finishing and Analysis in the Future meeting is sponsored by Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute.
