eGenomics: Cataloguing our complete genome collection III

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Allyson Lister



This meeting report summarizes the proceedings of the "eGenomics: Cataloguing our Complete Genome Collection III" workshop held September 11-13, 2006, at the National Institute for Environmental eScience (NIE eS), Cambridge, United Kingdom. This 3rd workshop of the Genomic Standards Consortium was divided into two parts. The first half of the three-day workshop was dedicated to reviewing the genomic diversity of our current and future genome and metagenome collection, and exploring linkages to a series of existing projects through formal presentations. The second half was dedicated to strategic discussions. Outcomes of the workshop include a revised "Minimum Information about a Genome Sequence" (MIGS) specification (v1.1), consensus on a variety of features to be added to the Genome Catalogue (GCat), agreement by several researchers to adopt MIGS for imminent genome publications, and an agreement by the EBI and NCBI to input their genome collections into GCat for the purpose of quantifying the amount of optional data already available (e.g., for geographic location coordinates) and working towards a single, global list of all public genomes and metagenomes.
