HoloGenomics for ecology, evolution and conservation

The Earth HoloGenome Initiative aims to promote, facilitate, coordinate and standardise hologenomic research on wild organisms worldwide

Genomes and Metagenomes

We are generating paired vertebrate genomic and associated microbial metagenomic data.

The networking has begun...
