Abstract

The Gordon Research Seminar on Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics aims to attract graduate students, post-docs and early career scientists to facilitate scientific dialogue with other researchers at similar career stages. Participants will present their novel studies, exchange cutting-edge ideas and gain experience presenting at an international conference in a supportive environment. In addition, the meeting will also include a mentorship panel that provides opportunity for the participants to interact with leading scientists from academic and industrial backgrounds. Genome sequencing is becoming cheaper and more powerful and is an invaluable tool for answering important questions in many fields of scientific endeavour. The current generation of scientists interested in evolution and ecology have been fortunate to start their career immersed in this technology. They are in an ideal position to exploit these revolutionary genomics tools to understand genetic mechanisms underlying the processes affecting the ability of organisms to generate novel phenotypes, adapt to environmental conditions and affect the function of an ecosystem. The aim of this GRS is to ensure that you, as a member of this community, are up to date with the latest scientific discoveries in the field, are well networked and have the necessary skills to advance your career. Co-chairs, Mark Leaver (Technische Universität Dresden) and Sangeet Lamichhaney (Harvard University) invite you to the University of New England on the beautiful seashore campus of Biddeford in Maine. We are looking forward to meeting you.
