International Genome Graph Symposium 2022
Monte Verita, Ascona - July 3-7, 2022
The International Genome Graph Symposium focuses on the advances of genome graphs and their applications in the biomedical field. The conference will offer various scientific sessions, ranging from genome graph representations and graphs as reference systems over genome graph algorithms and pipelines to quantitative methods on graphs and downstream applications. Still, at the beginning of the era of pangenomics, the meeting focuses on a topic of central importance to future genomics research. It has the goal to bring together international experts of this area of research and to start building a platform for innovations on representing genomic variability.
We are very happy to announce that the Human PanGenome Reference Consortium (HPRC) will hold a satellite meeting during IGGSy. The HPRC-sponsored satellite is the first international meeting designed to discuss and plan for a global pangenome initiative. Outcomes will be made available on the global pangenome website. If you are a member of the HPRC, please indicate this during registration. In addition to HPRC breakouts, we will offer many joint sessions throughout the conference. You can find further details in our program.
