General Information

Our 4th Virus Genomics and Evolution conference will highlight recent developments in genomics and evolutionary analysis of viruses.

The meeting will address the fundamental questions of viral evolution, transmission and pathogenesis.  It will showcase advances in viral genomics, bioinformatics and sequencing technology, as well as methodologies for large viral dataset analysis.  The application of viral genomic studies for patient management and public health will be explored.

Genomics of epidemic and non-epidemic viruses, emerging viral infections and pathogen discovery will be covered, in addition to SARS-CoV-2.

This conference brings together evolutionary biologists and bioinformaticians, who are developing methods and models to interrogate the genomic data, along with international participants working in diagnostic and public health, who are generating data from clinical samples.

Deadline for submissions: Abstract and bursary deadline: 13th September 2022
