Genomes of Animals and Plants (GAP) Virtual Conference is a Dovetail Genomics sponsored event that will help bring the genome assembly community together in these troubled times. Now, more than ever, efficient communication of exciting advances in plant and animal genomics is necessary.
The inaugural GAP2021 event will take place virtually on January 12-14, 2021 and will showcase de novo genome assembly projects from leading researchers in three main areas of study – conservation, evolution and agriculture. The emphasis will be on the application of high quality, chromosome-scale assemblies to downstream biological research.
In addition to exciting talks from our invited speakers, we will update attendees on the latest Dovetail advances in genome assembly technology and bioinformatics. Interactive Q&A sessions will enable scientific discussion between attendees and the speaker panels, small breakout discussions will facilitate smaller focused group conversations, and all attendees are encouraged to present their scientific research in the poster session.
