The International Genome Graph Symposium focuses on the advances of genome graphs and their applications in the biomedical field.


The event 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.
