Genomics has entered a new era that bioinformatics knowledge and tools are being actively applied to a broad spectrum of research fields, including medicine, agriculture, aquaculture, environment, and energy. The amount of data being produced by sequencing, mapping, and analyzing genomes propels genomics into the realm of Big Data. Life sciences have been highly affected by the generation of large datasets, specifically by overloads of omics information (genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes and other omics data from cells, tissues and organisms). Therefore, data sharing, idea exchange, interdiscipline collaboration, and direct communication are all essential for the fast developing research activities. With these in mind, Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), joining Genetics Society of China and Xi’an Jiaotong University, organizes the 4rd International Conference of Genomics in 2015. We would like to invite the field’s leading scientists in China and from other part of the world to come together and to share their insights on the recent progress in genome science and to discuss the challenges and future directions in the relevant fields.
As the chair of the International Conference of Genomics 2015, I am honored to invite you to join us at this conference. We look forward to your attendance at the ICG 2015 in Xi’an!
