Malaria resistance has been found to have spread rapidly from Cambodia to neighboring countries in Southeast Asia. Using genomic surveillance, researchers detected descendants of one multi-drug resistant malaria strain replacing local parasite populations in multiple countries.
A new study proposes a genome assembly technique utilizing sparse hierarchical minimizers (SHIMMER) that may increase the speed at which a de novo human genome may be assembled.
Greater knowledge of pathogen genomics and their vectors may play a major role in preventing and treating infectious diseases.
Researchers identified early genetic diversification in the Justinianic Plague across Western Europe.
This conference aims to unite investigators studying many diverse aspects of genetic recombination in a range of biological systems, and who use different experimental approaches.
This meeting will bring together researchers applying genomic based techniques to crop improvement and plant molecular breeding experts, along with traditional breeders who are interested in applying these techniques within their crops of interest.
Genomic information would help malaria control programs use quality data sets for regular monitoring of drug resistance, provide evidence for poicy decisions, and manage the spread of resistance.
To prepare for the next EVD outbreak, we advocate the establishment of national and regional hubs of excellence in infectious diseases genomics in regions with a high risk of outbreaks, where untargeted metagenomic sequencing analysis would be done.
The 2019 meeting will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized. In addition there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications of genome research.
This five-day computational course aims to give molecular microbiologists working with bacterial and eukaryotic pathogens a working knowledge of genomic analysis. The course will take the form of a series of modules covering the fundamental aspects of DNA sequence analysis and exploitation.
