BioVeL member Norman Morrison participated in the GSC conference in Shenzhen, China where there was much interest in his presentation of BioVeL.
The 13th meeting of the GSC is an open meeting aimed at widening the circle of researchers, industrial and policy representatives who employ and get involved with the GSC. The meeting was focused on megasequencing projects, those that leverage the extended capability of advanced next-generation sequencing technology to generate trillions of base pairs of sequence data. Specifically the meeting will be looking at how the reporting standards designed by the GSC can be used to help improve capture of contextual metadata associated with the sequence data. In addition there were policy discussions focused on the power of these datasets, new efforts to provide discussions forums for globally distributed ecosystem analysis sites, current developments in the Earth Microbiome Project, and advances in indoor microbiome research.
