International Workshop Series: How does sharing genetic sequence data impact biodiversity science and conservation?


Enabling Large-Scale Ecological Research with Open Genetic Data

Topic: Macrosystems and International Long Term Ecological Research

Date: November 10, 2021

Time: 12:00 - 2:00 PM EST or 5:00 - 7:00 PM UTC (This program will be recorded)

Location: Online via Zoom

Macrosystems Biology and Long-Term Ecological Research integrates the specimens and data collected at individual sites to allow a robust understanding of the structure and functions of ecosystems over extended spatial and temporal scales. Join us for this workshop to recognize both the value and challenges of integrating open genetic sequence data with this long-term ecological research to unlock opportunities for predictive modeling of habitats and ecosystems.
