Workshop on: MPEG-G - a standard to compress DNA reads

13:00 - 18:00, 13th October 2018, Shenzhen (CN)

A workshop on applications of genomic information processing will be held on 13th October 2018 one day after the 124th MPEG meeting.

The Workshop intends to provide an overview of MPEG-G the new ISO standard on the compression of and optimized access to genomic information, its impact on the relevant industry, on the various related standardization initiatives, use cases, sequencing technology evolution and perspectives for standardization in other –omics fields.

Specifically the workshop addresses:

  • An overview  of the ISO genomic compression standard and its new features and performance
  • The challenges for the generation and management of very large volumes of genome sequencing data
  • The status and future perspectives of sequencing technology and genomic data generation
  • The vision of genomic information storage and processing on the cloud
  • The vision of further standardization objectives in the –omics fields

The workshop is open to the public and interested parties who want to learn more on the perspectives of genomic data processing 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).
