Check out our latest preprint: the relevance of pedigrees in the conservation genomics era bit.ly/3wCO7DH. TLDR: it’s not either/or when it comes to #pedigrees & #genomics. Having both helps researchers address more conservation questions than one data set alone. 🧡 1/10 Conservation #genetics 🧬 has developed a substantive toolbox πŸ”§ to inform species management. While much discussion has been dedicated towards genomic advances, there remains one long-standing tool in #ConGen that is often overlooked: the pedigree. 2/10

We are excited to share our pub in #EvolutionaryApplications bit.ly/2GH3tzr comparing relatedness estimates for pairing recommendations in critically #endangered #birds from #Aotearoa #NZ πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ. See this #SciComm 🧡 for more! #Conservation #Genomics #ConGen #ConSERTeam 1/13 Around the 🌏, #conservation breeding programmes strategically pair the least related individuals to enhance recovery. This is like #Tinder for threatened species, only more information goes into pairing than swiping ⬅️ or ➑️. See my #3MT for more! 2/13

Exciting #ConSERTeam news! Our paper demonstrating the utility of closely-related reference genomes 🧬 for #conservation (Galla & Forsdick et al. 2019 @sgalla32 @NatForsdick @testeeves bit.ly/2Hj72z1) was published in @Genes_MDPI @MDPIOpenAccess. #ConGen 1/13 No longer just a promise (bit.ly/2SMXehV), the #ConservationGenomics revolution is here: #genomics is adding awesome tools to the #conservation tool box to inform the management of some of the world’s most threatened species. 2/13
