Microbial Community Genomics in Animals and in the Environment
Organizer(s): Edward M. Rubin and Edward F. Delong
Date: February 06 - 10, 2006
Location: Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, CA, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Through genomics we are presented for the first time with the opportunity to move beyond cultured single isolates of microbes exploring microbial communities in their natural environments. This meeting will focus on ways in which investigators are now adapting genomic tools and approaches to developing more realistic models for and insights into genome evolution, pathogenesis, speciation and a variety of other issues involving microbial communities of environmental and biomedical import. The meeting will highlight emerging technologies that should accelerate the variety and quality of useful data coming from metagenomic studies and computational approaches to its analysis. By enabling in-depth investigations into microbial communities that impact human health and the environment, microbial genomics is likely to contribute to treating diseases and managing the precious resources and processes that sustain life on this planet.
