Biodiversity Genomics Meeting 2020


Join us at Biodiversity Genomics 2020 to celebrate success, explore challenges and look to the future of sequencing all life on Earth.

Biodiversity Genomics 2020 will bring together researchers across the world to celebrate our achievements in genome sequencing across the eukaryotic tree of life, explore current challenges and their likely solutions, and look forward to the coming decade of the application of genomics across the globe. With major projects starting to deliver data at scale, new tools for sequencing and assembling genomes becoming available, and increased awareness of the power of whole genome data in understanding organismal biology and ecosystem processes, Biodiversity Genomics 2020 promises to be a milestone in the effort to “sequence life for the future of life”.
