From 03 May 2016 until 06 May 2016 - May 3-6, 2016 | CIBIO-InBIO, Campus Agrário de Vairão


Hosted by CIBIO-InBIO’s Conservation genetics and Wildlife Management - CONGEN Group, the CONGENOMICS 2016 Conference will take place at CIBIO-InBIO Associate Laboratory and the University of Porto facilities in Vairão, Portugal, from  May 3-6, 2016.


CONGENOMICS 2016, the final meeting of the ConGenOmics ESF Research Networking Programme (*), aims to gather the best research currently being performed on Genomics and its applications to Conservation.


Throughout the event, it is intended to provide an inspiring atmosphere for discussing the application of genomics to conservation, namely for inferring demography, population history, population viability, adaptative viability, taxonomy, as well as the use of metagenomics and environmental DNA.


The program includes six invited plenary lectures, submitted oral communications (regular and flash) and poster sessions, covering the state of art on conservation genomics. Travel grants are available for students and early career researchers (please see conference website for details).


Early registration fees (deadline: March 31): 250 EUR (standard), 100 EUR (students)

Submit your abstract online (deadline: February 21)
