FIRST INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL ‘OMICS SYNTHESIS CONFERENCE

September 9, 2013 - September 11, 2013

FIRST INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL ‘OMICS SYNTHESIS CONFERENCE

Cardiff University, UK, 9-11 September 2013

http://www.environmentalomics.org/ieos2013

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.

To register – with optional submission of an abstract – see:
