General Information

Population level analysis of complete genomes is becoming a reality for many species. This new conference will address the different challenges and applications of population-level conservation genomics. Sessions will focus on detecting adaptation and deleterious variation in populations, and linking genetic variation to phenotypic variation. New technologies for data collection and application of genomic insights for biodiversity conservation will be explored. The likely impact of genomic approaches on conservation efforts over the next decade will be discussed.

This meeting will bring together scientists addressing the challenges and opportunities arising from the rapid development of population-level conservation genomics. As the methods discussed will be cutting-edge, those interested in population and evolutionary genomics in other communities may benefit learning and applying similar techniques to their own research.
