FEMS Yeast Research Webinar on Genomic Insights into Yeast Diversity and Evolution
This webinar will explore how technological advances in genome analysis give important insights into the diversity and evolution of yeasts. The speakers will discuss how studying the genomes of a wide range of strains from different ecological or geographical origins allows the detection of genomic signatures of pathogenicity, domestication and niche adaptation. They will also offer new genome-level perspectives on how yeast species emerge and diversify over different evolutionary time-scales.
Thursday 28th January 2021, 10am EST / 3pm GMT / 4pm CET
