This conference brought the microbial genomics community together to share their most up-to-the-minute achievements, so much so that several talks cannot be covered here, as the work discussed has not yet been published. This meeting report has details of a cross-section of the talks from the sessions on ‘Genome analysis and comparative genomics’, ‘Computational genomics’ and ‘Functional genomics’, ranging from studies on complex environmental samples, to specific pathogenic bacteria, to yeasts.
