Conservation Genomics : amalgamation of conservation genetics and ecological and evolutionary genomics (ConGenOmics)
Possibly the most noteworthy recent technological development of relevance for conservation biology is the emergence of the next generation of sequencing technologies. These “deep sequencing” or “ultra-high throughput sequencing” technologies have already demonstrated
their potential by removing one of the main constraints of genomic approaches in non-model organisms, including many of conservation relevance: the lack of extensive genomic sequence information.
The genomics revolution brought about by technologies such as next-generation sequencing offer great possibilities but also present challenges. Much of the advance is technology-driven and expensive, which has the consequence that for many labs, currently working with more traditional methods, it will not be feasible, or even desirable, to update their scientific equipment. Instead, the most advanced equipment will be/is available in large outsourced commercial laboratories. This may in fact result in better possibilities to use these infrastructures. But what remains lacking is the necessary training in data analysis. In addition, genomics knowledge and facilities are very unevenly distributed across European countries.
