Latest advances in DNA sequencing highlighted at DOE Joint Genome Institute User Meeting

WALNUT CREEK, CA -- Four hundred researchers tapping the massive flow of DNA sequence information will gather March 28-30 to share their recent developments at the 2nd Annual U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) User Meeting. DOE JGI is the world's only user facility dedicated to making high-throughput DNA sequencing available to a diverse research community and individual investigators who otherwise would not have access to such a resource to advance the frontiers of their disciplines. The meeting will be held in the California Ballroom at the Walnut Creek Marriott, 2355 North Main Street.

Highlights of the three-day event include:

  • Search for Superior Biofuels
Larry Wackett, University of Minnesota

  • Engineering Microbes for Production of Low-Cost, Effective, Anti-Malarial Drugs
Jay Keasling, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

  • A Genomic Encyclopedia for Bacteria and Archaea
Jonathan Eisen, University of California, Davis

  • Explorations of the Human Microbiome
David Relman, Stanford University

  • New Amplification and Cloning Tools
David Mead, Lucigen Corporation

  • Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) data management system workshop

  • Tours of the DOE JGI Production Genomics Facility
