What can Next Generation Fungal Genome Sequencing do for you?

What can Next Generation Fungal Genome Sequencing do for you?

Fungal genomes are among the smallest of eukaryotic taxa, and have been the target of complete genome sequencing projects ranging from single genomes to hundreds of genomes. This symposium will start with an introduction to the fungal genome sequencing and assembly process, and then present several research projects ranging from small scale to very large scale, with costs ranging from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. These demonstrate the uses of the genomic data and the possible scientific discoveries. Speakers include mycologists, plant pathologists, and fungal evolutionary biologists. This theme should be of interest not only to those interested in fungal biology, but to other biologists who wish to use or learn more about these technologies.
