Promoting Conifer Genomics
Training Workshop 2014 University of Alcala, Spain
The second training workshop was held in Spain in the historic town of Alcalá de Henares from 19th - 21st Feb. 2014. The theme of the workshop was "Conifer Functional Genomics: analysis of gene networks involved in conifer adaptation". The workshop was attended by 40 people on an average, which included the project members, local researchers and students. Fifteen distinguished speakers were invited from Europe, Canada and the U.S.A. to present at this event. The speakers familiarised the participants with the latest technological advancements in sequencing, and bioinformatic tools available for gene and genome annotation. They also introduced concepts of epigenetics and epigenomics, and applications of functional genomics. The main attractions of this event were the recent advancements in functional genomics of conifers, especially from the recent and ongoing European and Trans-Atlantic initiatives.
