AllBio Community Bilding Event in the Netherlands

Purpose of the meeting was to bring together the Dutch metagenomics research community.

The meeting was organized together with NBIC (special thanks to Leon Mei). There were about 60 participants from over 20 research institutes and / or companies and several research groups within the research institutes. Presentations were given by various research groups on different topics. The plenary discussion in the afternoon was lively and resulted some test cases that will be formulated and uploaded onto the AllBio web portal.
