VIB and BGI organize joint genomics meeting, Feb. 15, 2012, Belgium
Date:2/8/2012

Both organizations are already collaborating on several projects, including the mapping of the genomes of more than 1,000 species of gut bacteria, compiled from 577 billion base pairs of sequence data. The leading scientific journal Science selected this work as one of the scientific breakthroughs of 2011. Large-scale genome sequencing is becoming ever more important in life sciences, healthcare and agricultural research.

Henry Yang, Executive Managemer of BGI, will start the meeting with an overview and introduction to BGI's sequencing and computing infrastructure. Other talks, by BGI and VIB scientists, will tackle large-scale analysis of human genomes, metagenomics and microbiology, the genomics of model organisms and the computational analysis of the data generated in genomics experiments.

Attending the meeting is free, but registration is obligatory.
