Hosted By David Haussler, Stephen J. O'Brien, Oliver Ryder, Joe DeRisi, & Jasper Rine
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.

- Genome scientists gather in Santa Cruz for back-to-back meetings
Leading scientists in the field of genome sequencing and analysis will gather in Santa Cruz for two meetings during the week of March 14 to address challenges and progress in genome research.
- G10K in the news: Genome 10K Project announces first 101 species for sequencing
The Genome 10K Community of Scientists and BGI (formerly the Beijing Genomics Institute) of Shenzhen, China, have announced a plan to sequence the genomes of 101 animals within the next two years, the first of 10,000 species to be sequenced by the Genome 10K Project.
- G10K in the news: G10K allies with BGI to decode 101 species within 2 years
BGI (previously known as Beijing Genomics Institute) and The Genome 10K Consortium of Scientists (G10KCOS) together announce a plan to sequence the genomes of the first 101 vertebrate species using BGI's facilities and infrastructure of next sequencing technology and bioinformatics platform within 2 years.
- G10K in the news: UCSC working on animal genome sequencing
The Genome 10K Project, which began as a meeting of scientists on the UC Santa Cruz campus in April 2009, has announced plans to sequence the genomes of 101 vertebrate species within the next two years.
