ebp launch session talks

Erich Jarvis from the Rockefeller University discusses the Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP), which is a project of the G10K Consortium and is working to generate genome assemblies of all 70,000 extant vertebrate species.

Kevin Hackett from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) speaks about the 5000 Insect Genome Project (i5K), which is working to sequence the genomes of all arthropods worldwide that are most important to food safety, agriculture, medicine, and energy production.

Jose Lopez from the NOVA Southeastern University delivers an update on recent progress from the Global Invertebrate Genome Alliance (GIGA), which was created in 2013 and aims to coordinate invertebrate genome projects and share bioinformatic resources.

Josefin Stiller from the University of Copenhagen discusses the 10,000 Bird Genome Project (B10K), which is a collaborative effort to generate draft genomes for all bird species and address questions regarding evolution, ecology, and biodiversity.

Xin Liu from BGI Research discusses recent progress and challenges of the 10,000 Plants Genome Project (10KP) including funding, genome surveying, data sharing, and sample collection. 10KP aims to sequence genomes for major clades of plants and eukaryotic microbes.

Igor Grigoriev leads the Fungal Genomics Program at the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute (JGI). His talk focuses on the 1000 Fungal Genomes project that is working to explore the diversity of fungi and how they impact energy and the environment.

Neil Hall of the Earlham Institute discusses the 10,000 Plant Genomes Project (10KP), which aims to sequence genomes representing every major clade of plants and eukaryotic microbes to improve our understanding of plant evolution and biodiversity.

Professor Emma C. Teeling from the School of Biology and Environmental Sciences at the University College, Dublin discusses Bat1K, an initiative to sequence all bat genomes in an effort to drive conservation and awareness of these ecologically integral animals.

The Earth BioGenome Project launched in London at an international consortium hosted by the Wellcome Sanger Institute, a nonprofit and one of the world’s leading genome centers. Dr. Harris Lewin discusses the moonshot initiative for biology in his opening talk.
