EukRef Workshop

July 19, 2015 - July 24, 2015

Our first workshop that will take place in Vancouver, Canada from July 19 to 25. This effort brings together taxonomists with expertise in individual lineages that span the eukaryotic tree of life to curate reference 18S rDNA sequences of these lineages by incorporating knowledge of phylogenetic, morphological, and/or environmental contextual data. During the workshop, the working group will integrate the curation efforts on individual eukaryotic groups into a biological data warehouse consisting of curated sequences, flexible taxonomy, and phylogenetic trees and their underlying sequence alignments. We will further use this 18S rDNA reference database to investigate the environmental distribution of eukaryotic microbes from large-scale HTES datasets. Each curator is encouraged to use their curated data to address research questions of interest.
