California Conservation Genomics Project

The UCLA La Kretz Center leads a $10 million California conservation project in a state-funded initiative that will provide officials with the scientific basis for confronting climate change. “This project has the potential to revolutionize how we manage our land,” said Bradley Shaffer, a UCLA distinguished professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and director of UCLA’s La Kretz Center for California Conservation Science. “We will apply state-of-the-art techniques to California’s most pressing conservation problems and provide government agencies with the best scientific data to make informed decisions as California’s climate continues to undergo rapid change.”
