SciLifeLab Workshop: Biodiversity and Evolution


This is the second SciLifeLab workshop on Biodiversity and Evolution and the theme of this workshop is Environmental Genomics. The workshop will take place at SciLifeLab in Uppsala June 1, 2015.

There will be ample time for discussion, as the aim is to stimulate collaborations.
