The 6th Annual Argonne Soil Metagenomics Meeting will be October 1–3, 2014. It will be followed by a hands-on data analysis training workshop on October 4 sponsored by TerraGenome.
This meeting aims to serve the research community by providing a venue for interaction among soil ecologists, microbiologists, bioinformaticists, and ‘omics enthusiasts. Through oral presentations, posters, discussion sessions, and participation by industry sponsors, the meeting covers any aspect of soil metagenomics research, from technical development to data analysis to science breakthroughs. We welcome participation from students and senior researchers alike.
This year, the meeting will take place at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois. We hope the change in venue will spark fresh discussion on the challenges and opportunities afforded by next-gen sequencing and ‘omics approaches to understanding the complex nature of soil microbial communities. We look forward to seeing you there!
We appreciate the generous financial support and meeting planning assistance provided by TerraGenome.
