We are happy to announce the International Workshop on the Integration of Genomic and Geographic Information System data for wildlife conservation (WIGGIS) organized by Life CLAW project.

Piacenza (PC, Italy) 15-16 September 2022

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become increasingly popular in molecular ecology and wildlife conservation studies due to their capability to overlay genetic information with environmental data, allowing the investigation of species distribution, gene-environment associations, and the genetic basis of adaptation to particular geographic or climatic conditions.

The WIGGIS workshop will highlight relevant new research on GIS and genomic data integrated modelling and will feature invited speakers, and oral and poster presentations by the attendees.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Piacenza.
