T he 2011 Workshop on Comparative Genomics at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History serves as a specialized, more concise session of the Workshop on Genomics. The curriculum was designed specifically for scientists at the Smithsonian Institution located in Washington, DC. Attention was given to covering fundamental techniques and major areas in the genomic sciences (assembly, metagenomics and transcriptomics).
