California Conservation Genomics Initiative
In this broadly integrative initiative, we bring together genome biologists, conservation scientists, resource managers and policy leaders to enable the linkage of conservation genomics with remote sensing and climate models to change the face of wildlife management in California. By working across university research laboratories and regulatory and research agencies, we marshal the power of genomics to redefine endangered species management in the face of climate change across California, including terrestrial, freshwater, and marine species.
We amplify the voices of diverse environmental scientists. Our Center members engage in media communication, and in discussions of climate change and environmental issues with various sectors.
