Conservation Genomics Muséum de Paris

  • Type d'évènement :
  • Dates : Du 5 au 6 juin 2024
  • Lieu : Muséum d'Histoire Natuelle (Paris)

Join us at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris for a two-day conference dedicated to exploring the intersection of genomics and conservation, with a particular focus on practical applications of genomics to immediate conservation needs. Participants and invited speakers include applied conservation practitioners, method developers, and genomics researchers.

Invited speakers include:

  • Marc Stalmans, Gorongosa National Park, Goinha, Mozambique
  • Lisa Komoroske, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA
  • Nicolas Poulet, Office Français de la Biodiversité, Toulouse, France
  • Guillaume Achaz, Collège de France, Paris, France
  • John Novembre, University of Chicago, USA
  • Pier Francesco Palamara, University of Oxford, United Kingdom
  • Jazlyn Mooney, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA
  • Thibaud Capblancq, Laboratoire d’Ecologie Alpine, France
  • Katerina Guschanski, Uppsala University, Sweden
  • Marta De Barba, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

There will be four sessions, all with opportunities for contributed presentations. 

  • Session 1 will focus specifically on the practical applications of genomic information in informing on-the-ground conservation decisions.
  • Session 2 will focus on using genomics to make inferences about very recent population history, on time scales relevant for conservation applications. This session will include both theoretical and practical talks.
  • Session 3 will focus on the issue of evolutionary rescue, including inference of mutation load and genomic offsets. 
  • Session 4 will focus on broader types of genomic data with relevance to conservation, including metagenomics and environmental DNA.

Registration (free, but capped at 120 participants) and abstract submission for contributed talks or posters is now open at:

This meeting is sponsored by la Fondation François Sommer, la Fédération Nationale des Chasseurs, le CNRS (INEE), le CIRB (Collège de France) and the BiodivOc program of the Région Occitanie
