Welcome to RECOMB-CG 2024 

The 21st Annual Satellite

 Conference of RECOMB on Comparative Genomics

Venue: TBA

Boston, MA, United States, April 27-28, 2024

The RECOMB Satellite Conference on Comparative Genomics, established in 2003, is a premier gathering that unites leading researchers from the mathematical, computational, and life sciences communities. The focus of this conference is on state-of-the-art research in comparative genomics, underlining the importance of computational methods and innovative experimental results. The 2024 edition promises to continue this tradition of excellence.

The advent of high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies has resulted in an abundance of genome-related data, escalating the challenges in computational comparative genomics. Comparing related genomes provides significant inferential power for understanding genome evolution, gene function, ancestral genome organization, cellular processes, evolution mechanisms, and the evolution of cancer genomes.

RECOMB-CG 2024 is a unique opportunity for researchers to contribute to and benefit from discussions on the latest theoretical and empirical approaches in the field. The conference will feature invited speakers, contributed talks, and poster sessions, fostering a dynamic environment for sharing new biological findings and underscoring their relevance to biology.

The RECOMB-CG conference offers a vibrant platform where experts discuss a wide range of topics related to genome-wide comparison. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Genome evolution
  • Genome rearrangements
  • Genomic variation, diversity, and dynamics
  • Gene identification and annotation
  • Methods for genome assembly
  • Cancer evolutionary genomics
  • Comparative epigenomics
  • Population genomics
  • Pangenomics
  • Phylogenomics and phylodynamics
  • Paleogenomics
  • Epidemiology
  • Metagenomics
  • Machine learning in genomics

Join us for the 21st edition of the RECOMB-CG conference, continuing the legacy of impactful contributions in computational comparative genomics since 2003. We invite you to be a part of this extraordinary event and contribute to the ongoing advancements in this critical field of research. The RECOMB Conference on Comparative Genomics (RECOMB-CG) has an extensive history that began in 2003. Annually, it assembles specialists in computational and life sciences to explore the latest developments in comparative genomics.
