The DOE JGI holds a number of meetings, workshops and special events throughout the year to meet the needs of the research community and public at large.
Previous JGI Workshops:
Application of High Performance Computing to the DOE Joint Genomic Institute’s Data Challenges:
January 25 - 26, 2010— Walnut Creek, CA
A jamboree is a scientific meeting at which members of a scientific community gather to discuss the genome of an organism of common interest. Participants have the opportunity to annotate the genome in advance of the meeting. The focus can be a single organism or a family of organisms. Similar creatures are also typically studied in order to draw comparisons and contrasts. Attendance is by invitation. Upcoming and Past Workshops and Jamborees: Fungal Program - Metagenomics - Microbial Genomics - Plant Genomics
Bioscriber - an educational tutorial - Developed as a means of introducing the concept of DNA synthesis/synthetic biology to the general public and how it is used at the DOE JGI and JBEI for bioenergy research, Bioscriber debuted on October 13, 2012 at the Berkeley Lab Open House. The tutorial level of this educational module shows how information from nature in the form of enzymes identified through genome sequencing can be harnessed to break down and convert plant biomass into an advanced, non-ethanol biofuel. The Bioscriber module is an ongoing project and those interested in becoming a part of the development team should contact David Gilbert, DOE JGI Public Affairs Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org
Planting & Caring for Your Poplar - An info sheet distributed with poplar seedlings that were handed out at the 2012 Berkeley Lab Open House. The poplar was the first tree to have its genome sequenced, and the work was done at the DOE JGI.
