Geographical coverage Global
Keywords genomics, systematics

The meeting marks the release of the assembled /Ectocarpus/ genome, the first genome of a complex multicellular alga and the publication of the accompanying paper(s). Previous meetings have served as a forum for researchers working on /Ectocarpus/ or by extension brown algae and diatoms to present their ongoing research. For the upcoming meeting we are broadening up the perspective by inviting leading scientists who have gone through the process of assembling and annotating genomes and are now in the phase of using these data to address specific research questions.

Sessions will include presentations providing an overview and update of
- organism and cell biology of algal model organisms
- environmental genomics
- comparative genomics
- systematics / phylogenomics

Confirmed speakers include:
- Yves Van de Peer
- Pierre Rouzé
- Chris Bowler
- Gareth Pearson
