Using genomics to conserve and manage wildlife species

Friday, 6 March, 2015
3:00–4:00 PM
Science 2, room 109

With rapid advances in technology combined with decreasing costs, genomic analyses are no longer restricted to a handful of model organisms. This potential has not yet been fully realized in conservation. During this talk I will use examples from two very different systems to demonstrate what we can learn using traditional population genetics, and where we can go with genomic approaches. First, I will discuss the conservation genetics of a reintroduced canid, and follow with the analysis of lodgepole and jack pine genomics and the contribution made to mountain pine beetle management.
