CBA hosted its inaugural conference on Biodiversity Genomics in the first week of April at CSIRO Discovery and ANU.
Over 180 delegates participated in the well-received (and sold-out!) conference and associated workshops.
Local and international researchers highlighted the contribution of biodiversity genomics to
- micro-and macroevolution,
- ecosystems and metagenomics, and
- policy, conservation and management.
The conference opened with the official launch of the CBA by Professor Ian Young, AO (Vice-Chancellor of the ANU) and Dr Mark Lonsdale (Chief CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences).
