Arctic Genomics at Canadian Polar Data Workshop V

This two-day workshop, Incorporating Applied Genomics and DNA based Tools into an Ecosystem Level Framework to Manage Arctic Marine Biota, is a hybrid event welcoming in-person and virtual attendance. It is the second Arctic Genomics workshop to be held concurrently with the Canadian Polar Data Workshop (CPDW).

Along with CPDW5, the workshop will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the Dalhousie Student Union, Dalhousie University. Register through the CPDW5 website.
