Climate change genomics workshop: vulnerability, adaptations & applications
This international online workshop is organised by the Climate Change Ecology and Ecological Genetics Special Interest Groups of the British Ecological Society. Participants will discuss methodologies, evidence and applications of genomics to investigate climate change induced effects on organisms. We aim to develop best practices for applying genetic/genomic tools to assess vulnerability and study adaptations to climate change in order to inform adaptive conservation management and promote better integration of genomic approaches in both climate change research and biodiversity conservation. This workshop will bring together international experts, junior scientists and everyone in between, working across a variety of ecological systems.
The workshop is split into morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate participants across different time zones. Each day will focus on a different theme and will include a combination of invited speaker talks, talks selected from abstract submissions, followed by breakout room discussions, and online poster sessions, with prizes for the best student talk and poster.
Day 1 Methods (13 Sep 2022): Exploring methods to assess vulnerability to climate change using genomic tools.
Day 2 Evidence (14 Sep 2022): Adaptation and resilience, including evidence of genetic adaptations to climate and climate change and genetic impacts of range shifts.
Day 3 Applications (15 Sep 2022): Approaches to monitoring genetic/genomic responses and changes under climate change and applications in policy and conservation management.
