The comparative genomics of microbial pathogens from all domains of life has become a big data problem. Databases already contain >200,000 assembled genomes from single species but adequate tools to reveal population structures are in their infancy. This meeting brought together world-class bioinformaticians with experts on bacterial and viral genomes to illustrate multiple approaches to solving this challenge.
