Abstract


This report summarizes the proceedings of the Metagenomics, Metadata, Metaanalysis, Models and Metainfrastructure (M5) Roundtable at the 13th International Society for Microbial Ecology Meeting in Seattle, WA, USA August 22-27, 2010. The Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) hosted this meeting as a community engagement exercise to describe the GSC to the microbial ecology community during this important international meeting. The roundtable included five talks given by members of the GSC, and was followed by audience participation in the form of a roundtable discussion. This report summarizes this event. Further information on the GSC and its range of activities can be found at http://www.gensc.org/.

Announcement

SIGS is currently in the process of transferring to a new publisher, BioMed Central. Although the Editor-in-Chief and the web address will remain the same, as of March 1, 2014 all Genome Reports submitted to SIGS will be published by BioMed Central and will incur an author processing charge (APC) of £865, payable upon acceptance. All other paper types will incur an APC of £1325, also payable upon acceptance. In submitting your paper to SIGS, you agree to pay this fee if and when your article is accepted for publication.

Acknowledgements

We would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of many members of the Genomic Standards Consortium, the broader genomic science community, and those who have indicated their willingness to serve as editors, reviewers and contributors.

SIGS was founded with grants from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies at Michigan State University, the Michigan State University Foundation, and the US Department of Energy Biological and Environmental Research DE-FG02-08ER64707.
