Infectious Disease Genomics and Global Health

The emphasis of this conference will be on the application of genomic technologies to problems of infectious disease in a global health context. Infectious disease is still a major burden on healthcare throughout the world, but particularly in developing countries. However, disease agents do not respect borders, and an integrated global approach is necessary to understand transmission and evolution of infectious disease agents. Genomic technologies promise new approaches to these problems, and these will be the major focus of the meeting. These technologies promote cross-fertilisation amongst previously disparate fields, and we therefore welcome abstracts covering any area in this field.
