The Santa Cruz 2011 Genome Assembly Workshop (March 14-16, 2011) will be held in conjunction with the Genome 10K project meeting. The genome assembly workshop will address one of the most pressing problems in genome sequencing: the increasing challenge of developing computational analysis methods that can keep up with the ever-accelerating advances in genome sequencing technology. This meeting will focus on computational analysis of whole-genome sequencing data and in particular on the critical problem of assembling these data into a reasonably complete and accurate genome sequence. Our goal is to agree on rigorous standards for de novo and reference-assisted genome assemblies and determine the best way forward to achieve these standards. To facilitate cross-fertilization in this workshop, we will engage experts from a variety of projects involving large-scale genome sequencing. We are holding this meeting to a limited number of participants so that we can have maximally focused discussions.
