Virus Genomics and Evolution Conference: 18-20 June 2018, UK

The Virus Genomics and Evolution Conference will be held from 18-20 June 2018 at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridge, UK and will address fundamental questions of viral origins, transmission and pathogenesis.

Virus genome sequencing is now widespread and the conference will showcase advances in viral genomics, bioinformatics and sequencing technology. Genomic studies have provided major insights into the epidemiology transmission and pathogenesis of viral infections, and are increasingly being applied to patient management and public health. The conference will cover the genomics of epidemic and non-epidemic viruses, emerging viral infections and pathogen discovery.

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