Training School: Genomic tools for conservation: a practicioners’ guide, La Valletta, MALTA

This Training School was mainly, but not exclusively oriented towards practitioners, with the aim of presenting, in the simplest and yet most comprehensive manner, the contribution that can be provided by genetics and genomics for effectively tackling practical conservation and management problems. The underlying rationale for the School was to create a bidirectional information flow between scientists and practitioners to explore and clarify where and when genomics can make a difference in every day conservation within an EU policy and legislative framework, but with global application.
