Date:3/21/2013

The 8th Annual Genomics of Energy and Environment Meeting of the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) will be held at the Marriott in Walnut Creek on March 26-28, 2013. The talks will focus on genomics research in the fields of clean energy generation and the environment. Keynote speeches will be delivered by Eric Karsenti of European Molecular Biology Laboratory on "TARA OCEANS: A global analysis of oceanic plankton ecosystems" and Chris Voigt of MIT on "Part mining for synthetic biology."

WHO: Researchers working in the fields of genomics, bioenergy, carbon cycling and biogeochemistry
WHAT: 8th Annual Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting
WHERE: Marriott in Walnut Creek (2355 North Main Street, Walnut Creek, California 94596)
WHEN: 5 pm, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 to 5 pm, Thursday, March 28, 2013

The annual meeting draws several hundred attendees from around the world. This year's talks and poster presentations will cover a wide range of topics in the fields of metagenomics, plants, microbial genomics and synthetic biology. Among the projects to be discussed are:

  • Plants as biofuels feedstocks using crops such as eucalyptus trees, grasses, jatropha and agave

  • Microbial populations in plant-root nodules, a very salty lake in Australia and in the dry valleys of Antarctica

  • Gut microbiomes of the flying squirrel and cow

  • Discussions on ongoing projects to expand the Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea, both from a genomic perspective (GEBA) as well as by characterizing gene functions (FEBA).
