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).
