Our 2017 Genome 10K conference will explore critical topics essential for assembling a genomic zoo of some 10,000 vertebrate species to help understand how complex animal life evolved through changes in DNA and use this knowledge to become better stewards of the planet.
The growing Genome 10K Community of Scientists (G10KCOS), made up of leading scientists representing major zoos, museums, research centers, and universities around the world, is dedicated to coordinating efforts in a major tissue specimen collection that will lay the groundwork for a large-scale sequencing and analysis project.
The Genome 10K Project was founded by David Haussler, Oliver Ryder, and Stephen O'Brien, who launched the project in April 2009 at a three-day meeting at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Registration opens February 1, 2017
