The Biology of Genomes

  December 27, 2017  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
May 8 - 12, 2018

The 2018 meeting will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized. In addition there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research.


  • Population Genomics
  • Evolutionary & Non-Human Genomics
  • Complex Traits & Microbiome
  • Functional Genomics & Epigenetics
  • Computational Genomics
  • Cancer & Medical Genomics
  • Genome Engineering & Editing
  • Ethical Legal & Social Implications

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in May.
