We are happy to announce the opening of the application process for the equal opportunities funding to attend the Workshop on Genomics 2023! Applications are supported and will be assessed by European Reference Genome Atlas. More information and the application form here: evomics.org/bursaries/
Our #ERGAMemberOfTheWeek is Zophonías Jónsson, professor University of Iceland & species ambassador for the highly #polymorphic Arctic Charr, an interesting model to study the sympatric #evolution of canalized phenotypes & the development of reproductive barriers between subpopulations.
Tackling the global #biodiversitycrisis requires understanding the diversity of life on Earth, how it functions, and how it responds to change. Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) unites #DNAbarcoding and full #Genome sequencing in an unprecedented effort to use #Genomics for biodiversity restoration.
The last couple of hours of #Biodiversity #Genomics Europe Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE)'s kick-off are for joint network activities, the area of BGE where #dnabarcoding (@BIOSCANEurope) and full Andrew Logan sequencing (@erga_biodiv) will converge and really break ground.

Our #ERGAMemberOfTheWeek is Jaume Pellicer @jau_m_e, researcher Institut Botànic de Barcelona @csic. Jaume is the species ambassador for the Pyrenean Violet, a rare alpine Tertiary relict species. Its genome will provide novel insights into the genetic basis of resistance to extreme desiccation.
Day 3 of Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) kick-off meeting at Naturalis Biodiversity Center starts with project manager Roya Shokoohi going through the management aspects of the project. Later on, time for the first BGE General Assembly! European Research Executive Agency BIOSCANEurope European Reference Genome Atlas #genomics #biodiversity #barcoding
Wrapping up the very productive second day of the Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) Kick-off meeting yesterday: Discussions about the ERGA stream were reported by the work package leaders and the #genome #workflow was reviewed along with the tasks and responsibilities of each partner institution.
Starting off the third and last day of the Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) Kick-off meeting Naturalis Biodiversity Center: Project manager Roya Shokoohi provides a summary of the governance of the project and reviews the calendar, milestones, activities and deliverables.

Intense working sessions on Day 2 of the Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) kick-off event at Naturalis Biodiversity Center. Break-out sessions at wp and stream level. We'll wrap up the day with a plenary to present and discuss outputs and conclusions. European Reference Genome Atlas BIOSCANEurope #genomics #dnabarcoding #genomes
♨️Once the presentations and preliminary sessions are done, it is time for the pillar coordinators to get us through their their role and expectations from the different Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE)'s work packages. BIOSCANEurope European Reference Genome Atlas #Genomics #dnabarcoding #genomes
