2016 Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genomics (EECG) Awards

2016 Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genomics (EECG) Awards

The AGA is proud to announce the recipients of the 2016 Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genomics (EECG) Awards, an annual research grant for student or postdoctoral research. We were again fortunate to have a large pool of excellent applications (70 in total) spanning genomics questions and approaches, as well as the world! We thank all of the applicants and congratulate the seven awardees on their fine proposals.
