Join NCBI virtually at the Biodiversity Genomics 2022 conference

Learn about the NIH Comparative Genomics Resource (CGR) Project

The Biodiversity Genomics conference will take place virtually, October 2-7, 2022. This event is hosted by the Earth BioGenome Project and is open and free for all to attend.

NCBI staff will present a variety of recorded talks and posters highlighting various elements of the NIH Comparative Genomics Resource (CGR), including NCBI Datasets and the Comparative Genome Viewer (CGV). CGR is a multi-year National Library of Medicine (NLM) project to maximize the impact of eukaryotic research organisms and their genomic data resources to biomedical research. NCBI is charged with leading CGR development and engaging genomics communities. The CGR project will facilitate reliable comparative genomics analyses for all eukaryotic organisms in collaboration with the genomics community.

  1. This page informs us that Dr Rangwala recently presented this talk

    “Introducing NCBI’s Comparative Genome Viewer (CGV)” presented by Sanjida Rangwala, PhD

    at the Biodiversity Genomics 2022 conference. This link sends one to
    the conference page but this requires a login

    “Please login with the credentials provided to you”

    How can the citizenry access this presentation?

    Also, I tried using the email address. It bounced. The message talks
    about organizations and groups. Sounds like the message is intended
    for internal government usage only. Shouldn’t people be able to send make to it? If not, the website should clarify this restriction?
