Genomic Forecasting Symposium

This free online symposium explores ways to leverage the abundance of genomic and environmental data for predictions of ecological and evolutionary responses to change and the consequences of an evolutionary perspective on ecological forecasting. Please register.

The symposium brings together researchers at various stages of using genomics to better understand the responses of plants and animals to environmental change with the aim of sharing tools and approaches across systems and ultimately improving genomic forecasting of wildlife.
