The ENCODE Research Applications and Users Meeting (ENCODE 2020) is going fully virtual and will commence morning US eastern standard time on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, and ends on Friday, October 2 afternoon (EST).

Oral sessions will be confined to the morning sessions and early-afternoon sessions (EST), and all the talks will be recorded. Recordings will be available after the meeting to maximize access by participants from around the world.

ENCODE 2020 is a unique opportunity for researchers at all levels to learn how to leverage the ENCODE Project’s ~15,000 genomic datasets to accelerate their research in genetics, cancer, neurobiology, immunology, cell engineering and computational biology. The meeting will have a special focus on the collection of ENCODE 3 publications released by Nature in the last July issue.

The agenda includes Keynote talks, Scientific Sessions by ENCODE researchers, Workshops / Hands-on Sessions, and Talks selected from abstracts. Attendees are highly encouraged to tailor their talks about the usage of ENCODE data in their research. Some past workshops and training material can be accessed here: LINK
