This meeting will provide a multidisciplinary forum for scientists interested in the genomics and evolutionary analysis of viruses and will address the fundamental questions of viral origins, transmission and pathogenesis.
Sessions will run online in afternoons for Europe and Africa | mornings for the Americas, enabling participation of evolutionary biologists, bioinformatics and public heath practitioners from across the globe.
Virus genome sequencing is now widespread and the conference will showcase advances in viral genomics, bioinformatics and sequencing technology. Genomic studies have provided major insights into the epidemiology transmission and pathogenesis of viral infections, and are increasingly being applied to patient management and public health. The conference will cover the genomics of epidemic and non-epidemic viruses, emerging viral infections and pathogen discovery.
This year’s meeting will focus on virus evolution, epidemics and outbreaks and emerging viral infections and zoonoses. We will also explore new technologies to analyse viruses and large datasets and discuss diagnostic methods to improve public health.
