ABSTRACT (TALK) DEADLINE:
29 May 2015 (extended from 25 May)

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and organisations from a range of disciplines with shared interests in the development of new approaches for data handling, generation and analysis in environmental omics. Science areas of interest include bioinformatics, DNA-barcoding, genomics, metagenomics, metabarcoding, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenetics, evolutionary and ecological omics, phylogenetics, study of ancient DNA and anthropology, new tools, resources and training, and beyond as applied to the study of the natural environmental and environmentally relevant organisms and systems. It is our hope is that the resulting interaction and exchange of ideas will lead to novel approaches, new collaborations and the consolidation of a wider integrated environmetal ‘omics community.
EOS and this conference is supported by Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) through its Mathematics and Informatics for Environmental ‘Omics Data Synthesis programme and the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Global Challenges programme.
Attendees are also very welcome at a separate meeting on Data Science, immediately preceding the main registration event for the above conference. This separate event, on the afternoon of 6 July, is in the "Summer of V's" series - organised by the Institute of Data Intensive Research at the University of St Andrews. The "Summer of V's" meeting will end in time for the main registration event for the International Environmental 'Omics Synthesis Conference. The "Summer of V's" meeting is free to attend but requires separate registration in advance.
