Genomes of Microbiomes – a view from Twitter

Posted on September 28, 2022   by Priya Gurung

Genomes of Microbiomes took place on 15–16 September 2022 at the Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre, Birmingham, UK. In this blog, we take a look at the highlights on Twitter.

With a full scientific programme prepared to address the latest advances in metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) research, we were looking forward to hearing from renowned invited speakers and offered paper presenters from across the world, showcasing the latest research!

We were pleased to see our delegates were just as excited to attend, especially as some were travelling internationally.


Scientific sessions

The scientific sessions at #GenomesMicrobiome22 were designed to give delegates a forum for discussion on the impact of MAGs. The programme featured talks from invited speakers from across the world, an excellent opportunity for those working in the field to network and to build upon and establish collaborations.



The poster sessions showcased the diversity of research within the Genomes of Microbiomes community. Our delegates were able to share their work, and discuss and exchange ideas with one another, giving plenty of opportunities for early career researchers to present their work too.


Huge congratulations to Vijini Mallawaarachchi for winning the ‘Outstanding Science Prize to a scientific poster’ sponsored by Microbial Genomics!


Thank you

Finally, thank you to everyone who attended Genomes of Microbiomes, contributed to its success and joined the conversation on Twitter! We hope to welcome you again to another conference in our events series.
