Genomes for science, genomes for life, and genomes for you and me
Date:7/1/2013

Ghent, Belgium, Copenhagen, Denmark, and Shenzhen, China -- ICG Europe 2013, co-organized by BGI and VIB, was successfully concluded on June 28 in Ghent, Belgium presenting numerous recent advances on genomics and its growing applications. A broader spectrum of genomics topics have been discussed in greater depth, particularly focusing on personalized and public healthcare, biomedical research, plant and animal genomics, and metagenomics.

ICG Europe 2013, attended by more than 300 participants, included presentations from global industry thought leaders, prominent researchers and top policy makers. The conference kicked off with warm opening speeches delivered by Professor Em. Marc Van Montagu, Plant scientist from Ghent University and Scientific advisor of VIB, and Professor Huanming Yang, Chairman of BGI.

The world is developing rapidly, but "for the first time in history more than 1 billon people go to bed hungry each night" once said by Robert Zoellick, President of the World Bank on 20 September, 2010. It is an enormous responsibility of what science would do to improve the world. However, the progress of life science is based upon the correctness of scientific findings. The misinformation is dangerous for health, environment, and the society. In Professor Montagu's report, he discussed science, technology and their social acceptance, and emphasized the importance of the correctness of scientific findings.

Professor Huanming Yang said, "Science is needed by all, done by all, and shared by all. The aim of ICG is to create a venue where researchers from around the world can reflect on progress made in the scientific study of Omics. We should jointly promote global genomics research in a spirit of collaboration." He also presented the concept of "HELPCESS" for science and humanity. HELPCESS stands for "Humanity, Ethical, Legal, Public Relationship, Cultural (Religious), economic, Safety/Security, Social".
