Omics-driven genome annotation

Lille, March 31st 2017

This one-day symposium will focus on the contribution of Omics data (mainly the high throughput sequencing data) in our knowledge and understanding of genome organization, genome architecture and genome syntactic and functional annotation.  The idea is to understand how the available omics data are used by biologists and bioinformaticians to annotate genomes and to make sense between genome organization and functions. Some recent tools and new approaches will be presented.

The meeting will take place at Polytech'Lille (see below).
