Australasian Genomic Technologies Association (AGTA) Live

August 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Online Event

Join us to hear from Australia and New Zealand’s leading experts in the future of conservation genomics.

The biodiversity crisis is a significant issue which has far reaching impacts on the environment, food security and human health. It is essential to maintain diversity across ecosystems, diversity across species and diversity across genes. Join us in a discussion on how genomics is being used in the Australasian region in species recovery and conservation management; what the future holds and what our social and environmental responsibilities are.
