Conserving California: Applying Whole Genome Sequencing in the California Conservation Genomics Project (CCGP)

Sponsored by: seqWell
Speakers

Abstract
Date:  May 11, 2022
Time: 12:00pm (PDT), 3:00pm (EDT), 9:00pm (CEST)
 
In this presentation, Dr. Courtney Miller and Daniel Rodrigues Oliveira, M.S. will describe the efforts of the California Conservation Genomics Project (CCGP) to utilize whole genome sequencing (WGS) technology to sequence approximately 22,000 individual plants and animals, representing approximately 250 species across the state of California, many of which are non-model organisms.
 
The CCGP is a state-funded initiative with a single goal: to produce the most comprehensive, multispecies, genomic dataset ever assembled to help manage regional biodiversity. The CCGP brings together many of California’s leading experts, working at the interface of genomics and conservation science, to provide decision makers with cutting-edge genomic resources and analyses in the face of rapidly accelerating species declines.
 
In this webinar, the CCGP will discuss how they carry out their “tissue to sequence” pipeline, leveraging seqWell’s plexWell(TM) technology to generate WGS data for a third of the projects' total samples. In particular, the talk will demonstrate how high-throughput WGS data can be generated efficiently across a variety of non-model taxonomic groups, applying automated workflows and batched sample processing designs. Finally, it will be highlighted how high-throughput technologies can help move conservation genomics from a single species to a multi-species scale.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Background and goals of the CCGP
  • How the CCGP is using seqWell technology to process 1000s of samples from a variety of taxa
  • Discuss the application of WGS data to conservation moving forward, particularly as it pertains to non-model species
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
