FIRST INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL 'OMICS SYNTHESIS CONFERENCE
Cardiff University, UK, 9-11 September 2013
FINAL CALL - ABSTRACTS AND REGISTRATION
ABSTRACT DEADLINE: 31 July 2013
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 1 August 2013
We are pleased to announce the last few days to submit an abstract or register to attend the first ever conference on 'omics applications, tools and resources focused on the environmental sciences.
The meeting covers genomics, metabolomics and other high-throughput approaches in biology ('omics). The meeting is targeted both at current and future users of 'omics, and for developers of bioinformatics and 'omics technologies.
The conference includes dedicated introductory talks and training sessions on day one, for those who are new to the field, followed by two days of world-class science presentations delivered by several international leaders in environmental 'omics. The conference will promote exchange of ideas between all of these groups.
We encourage submission of abstracts to be considered for oral and poster presentation, and in particular encourage submissions from PhD students and postdoctoral researchers.
