    The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and organisations from a range of disciplines with shared interests in the development of new approaches for data handling, generation and analysis in environmental omics. It is our hope is that the resulting interaction and exchange of ideas will lead to novel approaches, new collaborations and the consolidation of a wider integrated environmental ‘omics community.

    <p>ABSTRACT (TALK) and REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 6 June 2015 Science areas include bioinformatics, DNA-barcoding, genomics, metagenomics, metabarcoding, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenetics, evolutionary and ecological omics, phylogenetics, study of ancient DNA and anthropology, new tools, resources and training--as applied to the study of the natural environment and environmentally relevant organisms and systems. We hope the resulting interactions and exchange of ideas will lead to novel approaches, new collaborations and the consolidation of a wider integrated environmental &lsquo;omics community. Keynote speakers are Professor Elizabeth Thompson from the University of Washington, Professor Mark Blaxter from the University of Edinburgh, and Professor Barbara Meth&eacute;, J Craig Ventor Institute.
