Novel Genomics Data Visualisation: Out with the Old, In with the New

Exciting and attractive methods for presenting (meta)-genomics data.

Genomics is increasingly being seen as a tool that can be applied to facilitate research in a wide variety of areas, and the availability of insect genomes has increased rapidly. These tools are becoming increasingly widely available as sequencing costs continue to plummet. 

This hybrid meeting will take place at Lancaster University as the first in-person Genomics meeting in four years.

Read about our Genomics Special Interest Group.

A lot of researchers in the sequencing (genomics and metabarcoding) field are tired of using the same inefficient figure design for papers.

There are innovative individuals like Andrew Doxey along with private companies like Nature Metrics who are designing fun new programs and graphic design works for addressing this problem.

The RES SIG meeting is an opportunity to open up the floor to hear what people are doing with data visualisation.

Nature Metrics have kindly offered to sponsor the first in-person Genomics meeting in 4 years. The genomic sequencing and metabarcoding services they offer that are exciting and present an opportunity to out-source expensive and time consuming project work to an ethically run business, based in the UK.

Would you like to do a presentation at our Genomics event?
