GSC21 Satellite Meetings
May 24, 2019:
Cyanobacteria Nomenclature and Taxonomy Satellite Meeting
Organizers: Phil Hugenholtz, Rochelle Soo
In this satellite meeting we will discuss the current issues of the nomenclature in the Cyanobacteria, propose a phylogenetic framework and try to determine nomenclature rules for populating the structure. The meeting will consist of speakers, a discussion and an annotation jamboree.
May 23-24, 2019:
GOs/GLOMICON satellite meeting
The Global Omics Observatory Network (GLOMICON) – combining Microbial. Essential Ocean Variable (EOV) ontologies.
Organizers: Neil Davies, Pier Luigi Buttigieg, John Deck, Chris Meyer, Ramona Walls
This satellite meeting will take place on afternoon of Thursday (23 May) and through Friday (noon or 5pm) 24 May. The agenda will address future directions of GOs Network and GLOMICON.
