Workshop on Genomic Information Representation (MPEG-G)

Date: 
Wednesday, 18 April 2018 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Venue: 
San Diego Marriott La Jolla
4240 La Jolla Village Drive
San Diego, CA 92037
United States

A workshop on applications of genomic information processing will be held on 18th April 2018 co-located with the 122nd MPEG meeting in San Diego.

The Workshop intends to explore the opportunities for improved genome sequencing data processing services enabled by the availability in late 2018 of an ISO standard called MPEG-G on the compression of genomic information and its impact on the relevant industry.

Specifically the workshop addresses:

  • The perspectives and potential of genomic information usage in medicine and public health
  • The vision of interdisciplinary approaches to the analysis of genome sequencing data
  • The challenges for the generation and management of very large volumes of genome sequencing data
  • The status, progresses of sequencing technology and associate data generation features
  • The reasons for supporting seameless availability and exchange of genome sequencing data for improving scientific progress yielded by wider data volume analysis   
  • A status report on the development of the ISO genomic compression standard and an overview of its new features and performance

The workshop is open to the public and interested parties who want to learn more on the perspectives of genomic applications and on new technologies for the processing of genome sequencing data.

Registration is free of charge. To register (only for logistic purposes), please send an email to Massimo Ravasi (massimo.ravasi@epfl.ch).
