Accepted Papers

The annual RECOMB Comparative Genomics Satellite Conference (RECOMB-CG) brings together leading researchers in the mathematical, computational and life sciences to discuss cutting edge research in comparative genomics, with an emphasis on computational approaches and the analysis of novel experimental results. The program will include keynote talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.

We have invited high-quality original full papers solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • genome evolution
  • population genomics
  • genome rearrangements
  • genome variation, diversity and dynamics
  • phylogenomics
  • comparative tools for genome assembly
  • comparison of functional networks
  • gene identification and/or annotation
  • cancer evolutionary genomics
  • comparative epigenomics
  • paleogenomics
  • epidemiology
