iEOS2015 to be hosted by the Centre for Biological Diversity, University of St Andrews July 6-8th #iEOS2015

iEOS2015 to be held in St Andrews in week starting 6th July 2015

Conference Organiser: Professor Thomas Meagher 

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and organisations from a range of disciplines with shared interests in the development of new approaches for data handling, generation and analysis in environmental omics.  Science areas of interest include bioinformatics, DNA-barcoding, genomics, metagenomics, metabarcoding,  transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenetics, evolutionary and ecological omics, phylogenetics, study of ancient DNA and anthropology, new tools, resources and training, and beyond as applied to the study of the natural environmental and environmentally relevant organisms and systems.  It is our hope is that the resulting interaction and exchange of ideas will lead to novel approaches, new collaborations and the establishment of a wider integrated ‘Omic community.

EOS and this conference is supported by Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC)  through its Mathematics and Informatics for Environmental ‘Omics Data Synthesis programme and the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Global Challenges programme.

Heavy metals are essential for life, however, paradoxically exploitation of land for mineral extraction and manufacturing industry results in the release of large quantities of heavy metals that can be toxic to the natural environment. My research portfolio is designed to exploit state-of-the-art genomic, proteomic and metabolomic techniques to study the mechanisms by which biological systems handle heavy metals assessing: their impact as pollutants, their involvement in disease and the basic mechanisms by which they are bound within biological systems.
