RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Comparative Genomics - Videos Available

San Diego, CA, October 11, 2007 -- Large-scale genome sequencing projects are generating vast amounts of data for a multitude of organisms, including mammals and other vertebrates, invertebrates, fungi, plants, bacteria, and viruses. As the data increase, so do the opportunities and the challenges for scientists to interpret them. Comparative genomics lies at the forefront of this challenge.

The RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Comparative Genomics, held at Calit2's Atkinson Hall September 16-18 2007, is a forum on all aspects and components of this field, ranging from new quantitative discoveries about genome structure and process, to theorems on the complexity of computational problems inspired by genome comparison.
