Virus genome sequencing is now widespread and the conference will showcase advances in viral genomics, bioinformatics and sequencing technology. Genomic studies have provided major insights into the epidemiology transmission and pathogenesis of viral infections, and are increasingly being applied to patient management and public health. The conference will cover the genomics of epidemic and non-epidemic viruses, emerging viral infections and pathogen discovery.

This meeting will bring together international participants working in the diagnostic and public health communities, who are generating data from clinical samples, with evolutionary biologists and bioinformaticians, who are developing methods and models to interrogate the genomic data.

Scientific sessions
- Viral genome sequencing: diagnostics and public health
- Virus discovery
- Epidemics
- Evolution of pathogenesis
- Re-emerging viral infections
