ECOLOGICAL GENOMICS
This integrative field combines genomic tools and ecological approaches to determine the functional significance of genes and genomes and their evolutionary and ecological context. The Ecological Genomics Institute at Kansas State University comprises 25 faculty from seven disciplines.

The Symposium will feature lectures by scientists at the forefront of Ecological and Evolutionary Functional Genomics. Oral and poster presentations on selected KSU Ecological Genomics projects will also be included.
