2018 Fall Schedule

Functional Genomics of Invasive Species

Dr. Ralph Turnigan
November 8, 2018

Invasive species impose critical threats to ecological and economic systems worldwide. Florida has more invasive species than any other state in the United States; even our marine environment is affected by invasions of exotic species like the venomous lionfish. Dr. Turingan will discuss plans for a novel approach - analyzing the entire genomes of fish species - to predict the magnitude of the threat of potential and actual invasive fish species, and to better understand how well native species perform in response to exotic invaders.
