GSC22

22nd Genomic Standards Consortium Meeting

Genomic Standards for Precision Medicine, Agriculture, Comparative Genomics, and Metabolomics

GSC22 sessions will focus on tackling metadata challenges related to the sample collection, processing and genomic sequencing workflow critical for small and large scale datasets within the fields of medical genomics, agriculture, comparative genomics, and metabolomics tackling metadata challenges related to the sample collection, processing and genomic sequencing workflow critical for small and large scale datasets. It is our intention to discuss and plan for evolving genomic and laboratory standards to address the needs of the clinical, academic and industry researchers with a focus on precision medicine and agriculture.
