Abstract submission

Abstract submission is closed.

Abstracts are solicited in any field related to metagenomics or computational analysis of microbial ecosystems. See the list of example topics below.

Topics include:

  • All areas of environmental sequencing (e.g. amplicon sequencing, shotgun metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metaproteomics)
  • Prokaryotic, eukaryotic or viral systems
  • Sequencing strategies and technologies
  • Quality control, data pre-treatment
  • Read mapping, taxonomic and functional annotation
  • Comparative metagenomics
  • Metagenome assembly
  • Discovery of novel species, enzymes
  • Monitoring, public health surveillance
  • The tree of life, the rare biosphere
  • Microbial networks and ecosystem modeling
  • Host-microbe interactions (e.g. human, plants, corals)
  • Role of microbes in bioremediation, biogeochemical cycles
  • Visualisation

To submit an abstract, please visit the BioSB 2015 abstract submission page. Please indicate that you are submitting your abstract for the 'Metagenomics Topical track'. More information about the abstract submission procedure can also be found on this page.
