4th GSC Workshop

The 4th Genomic Standards Consortium Workshop will be held next week, 6-8th June, 2007 at the National Institute for Environmental e-Science (NIEeS), Cambridge.

As at previous workshops there will be a mix of talks and discussion sessions, although this year the talks will be shorter and more focused on progress made towards GSC goals. There will be 6 sessions covering key topics of interest to the GSC.

There will be a special focus on progress to date, the development of MIMS, future implementation of MIGS/MIMS, CVs and ontologies for describing genomes and metagenomes, the need for a single, global list of genomes and metagenomes and the role of the GSC’s proposed Genomic Rosetta Stone.

The latest agenda is available on the GSC wiki. Workshop homepage on NIEeSweb site
