Venter, Somerville and Church highlight DOE/JGI genomics of energy and environment meeting
Date:3/5/2009

Keynote addresses by genomics pioneers J. Craig Venter, Energy Bioscience Institute's Chris Somerville and Harvard's George Church will highlight the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) annual Genomics of Energy and Environment User Meeting March 25-27, 2009 in Walnut Creek, Calif.

This year's meeting will emphasize the genomics of renewable energy strategies, biomass conversion to biofuels, environmental gene discovery, and engineering of fuel-producing organisms. The meeting will feature presentations by leading scientists advancing these topics as well as bioinformatics workshops and sessions on improving biomass, its degradation, and biofuels; genome evolution and adaptation; new sequencing technologies; functional genomics; and synthetic biology.
