Join NCBI at PAG 30

San Diego, January 13-18, 2023 

NCBI is looking forward to seeing you in person at the International Plant and Animal Genome Conference (PAG 30), January 13-18, 2023 in San Diego, California.  

We’re especially excited to share our recent efforts on the NIH Comparative Genomics Resource (CGR), a multi-year National Library of Medicine (NLM) project to maximize the impact of eukaryotic research organisms and their genomic data resources on biomedical research.  

We also want to hear from you! If you’re interested in sharing your feedback on your needs and experiences involving comparative genomics tools to inform CGR, consider joining our Feedback Session.

Feedback Session: A conversation with NCBI about the NIH Comparative Genomics Resource (CGR)

Tuesday, January 17, 9:30 – 10:30 am
Location: Skyview 2 

Limited Space! 

We want to hear from you! Join us for a small round table discussion to provide feedback that will inform NCBI’s development of an ecosystem of public tools, data, and interfaces facilitating reliable comparative genomics analyses for all eukaryotic organisms.  

These discussions are designed for: 

    • Researchers, scientists, educators, developers, librarians, and students that use comparative genomics in their work 
    • Users of NCBI data, tools, and resources for comparative genomics analyses (e.g., BLAST, Datasets, Gene, CD-Search, Genome Data Viewer, Multiple Sequence Alignment Viewer, Comparative Genome Viewer, etc.)

Topics include: 

    • Genomics tools and resources you use 
    • How well current NCBI resources meet your needs 
    • Resource gaps and barriers in comparative genomics that NCBI could address 
Booth #423, Exhibit Hall 

Stop by our booth to provide feedback, ask questions, or just to chat! 

Sunday, January 15, 3:00 pm – 8:45 pm
Monday, January 16, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm
