From June 20-24, 2019, NCBI staff will participate in ASM Microbe 2019. Not only can you visit us at booth #433, but you can also visit several posters and presentations covering various topics like prokaryotic curation, antibiotic resistance, bioinformatics in public health, and more.


On Friday, June 21, 2019, NCBI will have two posters:

  • Stand-Alone PGAP: An NCBI Open-Source Pipeline to Annotate Prokaryotic Genomes
    • Session Title: MBP10 – Tools for Genetics and Genomics
  • NCBI Taxonomy Database for Prokaryotic Curation
    • Session Title: MBP02 – Computational Genomics, Databases and Modeling

You can see each of these posters at 11am – 12pm PST and 4 – 5pm PST.


On Saturday, June 22, 2019 7:15am-8:15am, join us for a talk titled “NCBI, Antibiotic Resistance and a Million Genomes” and on Monday, June 24, 2019 8:30am-11am, for a talk called “AMR Resources at NCBI’s Pathogen Portal” in a Symposium entitled “Genomic Tools and Databases for Prediction of AMR”.


  • Friday, June 21 10:30am-5:00pm
  • Saturday, June 22 10:30am-5:00pm
  • Sunday, June 23 10:30am-4:00pm
