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.

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?

Please submit details using this form.

Along with submitting your presentation abstract form, please also send your posters and talk documents to info@royensoc.co.uk

with subject ‘Genomics Abstract Submission’.

Oral and poster presentations are welcome. Open sessions will be scheduled as required.

All those contributing papers or posters (both in-person or online) are required to register for the meeting.

Please note: Submitting your abstracts does not automatically provide a presentation space and you will be contacted by the organisers in the weeks post-deadline to confirm a date/time slot if your abstract is chosen.

Andrew Doxey
Associate Professor, University Research Chair, Biology Core Facility Director

Andrew Doxey is a bioinformatician with research interests in biological data mining, protein function prediction, and comparative and evolutionary genomics.

The Doxey Lab develops computational methods to predict novel molecular or systems-level functions from genomes and other “omics” datasets. Current efforts are focused largely on uncharacterized proteins from newly sequenced microbial genomes and metagenomes.

The Doxey Lab combines both “dry” (computational) and “wet” (biochemical/molecular) approaches, and works closely with a diverse range of local and international collaborators.
