ESEB 2022 DrosEU Symposium “Progress and Prospects in Adaptation Genomics”

The aim of this symposium is to bring together evolutionary biologists interested in using genomics to understand adaptive processes and evolutionary history and to discuss recent progress and future prospects in this field. Population genomics deals with three fundamental questions: (1) How much genetic variation exists in populations? (2) How is this variation maintained? (3)continue …

Citizen Science: Teachers from Tomelloso, Granada, Alicante, Navarra and Barcelona to receive training in molecular biology techniques to implement them in High Schools.

On December 9 and 10, 2021, six secondary and primary teachers from Spain, which participate actively in the citizen science project Melanogaster: Catch The Fly! (#MelanogasterCTF), have met in the Laboratory of Evolutionary and Functional Genomics (González Lab) of Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE, CSIC-UPF) with the aim of receiving a training course in thecontinue …

Opportunities

The data obtained by the European citizen science project #MelanogasterCTF was used to create the Drosophila Evolution over Space and Time (DEST), the world’s largest fruit fly genomic data repository.

The European Drosophila Population Genomics Consortium (DrosEU), together with the North American Real Time Evolution Consortium (DrosRTEC) has published a new article, Drosophila Evolution over Space and Time (DEST) – A new population genomics resource, in the prestigious journal Molecular Biology and Evolution using, among other samples, the samples of natural populations of Drosophila melanogastercontinue …

Melanogaster Catch The Fly!

Josefa González and her team at the Laboratory of Evolutionary and Functional Genomics are leading the Melanogaster Catch the Fly outreach project. This is the first European citizen science network in adaptation genomics. Through direct involvement, the proposal aims to bring science to students and teachers within the framework of the first scientific project in genomics adaptationcontinue …
