Functional Annotations of Animal Genomes (FAANG)

The main goals of the Workshop are to: 1) promote information exchanges regarding recent FAANG efforts worldwide, 2) provide a great forum for the FAANG community to communicate and foster the interactions and collaborations. Especially, this meeting will bring many international scientists in animal genomics and discuss how to develop new assay and bioinformatics tools that meet the need for the FAANG initiative and share genomic resources. Such information sharing among delegates from the world will provide opportunities for the international exchange of technology, data and cooperation throughout the world.
