Metagenomics satellite track
The Netherlands Metagenomics Platform cordially invites you to join the Metagenomics Satellite Track at the NBIC 2013 on April 17, 2013.
Jeroen Raes of the Flemish Bioinformatics Institute and the Free University of Brussels will be present at this satellite meeting and will also give a keynote lecture during the NBIC2013 programme.
The Metagenomics Satellite Track is sponsored by Allbio.

- 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
