ISMB 2012 Vignettes Pt. 2: Phylogenomic Approaches to Function Prediction
I chaired the Automated Function Prediction meeting at ISMB this year. The meeting, held every year (almost) deals with the latest approaches to predicting protein function from genetic and genomic data, and also discussing the Critical Assessment of Function Annotation This year we were fortunate to have Jonathan Eisen as our keynote speaker. Ever wondered whether we actually need all those genomes that are being sequenced on a daily basis? Jonathan claims that we do, since it is through a gene’s history and evolution that we can properly understand — and predict — a genes’ function.
Here is Jonathan’s talk:
