UNewEngland: 1st GRC on Ecological Evolutionary Genomics – Jul 14-19

Please join us as we convene 10 years after the first GRC on Ecological Genomics!

July 14-19, 2013
University of New England
Biddeford, Maine

Speakers and Discussion Leaders will present cutting-edge genome-enabled approaches that are being used to further our understanding of how organisms adapt to changing environments. Specific topics to be addressed include critical research challenges in , the study of genome evolution, the evolution of complex phenotypes, and environmental and global change biology. We have made explicit emphasis on “ecogenomics”, population genomics, and the bioinformatics required to understand the transition of genotype to phenotype.

We would like to invite you to attend this and join our community in discussing the frontiers and future challenges in this research area. Gordon Research Conferences are an ideal venue for informal and interactive discussions in beautiful locations in New England.
