Biodiversity Genomics - A Global Perspective
Satellite Meeting - Sunday 16 July 2023, 0845 - 1645hrs
Rooms 218 and 219 (click here for directions)
Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre

Biodiversity faces many threats resulting from human activity around the world. There are an extraordinary number of species and ecosystems known to be threatened, with many more to be identified and registered. Urgent and sustained action is required.  Genomics offers a powerful set of tools that provide critical information to underpin and guide the development and implementation strategies to preserve biodiversity.  These genomic tools include genome sequencing, genotyping of populations and e-DNA.

In 2018 an audacious plan to sequence, catalog and characterize the genomes of all of the Earth’s eukaryotic biodiversity over a period of 10 years was announced. Five years on, what progress is being made on this moonshot for biology? What benefits are being derived from this research and what needs to be done to expedite progress? 

These questions will be addressed in this special one-day satellite meeting to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Sunday July 16 2023, preceding the Opening Ceremony of the International Congress of Genetics (1800hrs).  

Starting with the shared opening session, this Biodiversity Genomics meeting will divide into two streams, one on genome sequencing and genotyping and the other on the use of e-DNA to study ecosystems. 

This meeting will be an important step towards a national dialogue on how systematic and sustained genomic analysis can be used to identify, preserve and protect Australia’s unique biodiversity. Please join us!!
