The Molecular Ecology Working Group
Applying Genetic and Genomic Tools to Wildlife Management and Conservation
What We Do
The Molecular Ecology Working Group works on many exciting projects to provide opportunities for our members and collaborators. Learn more about what we do and how you can get involved.
We are continuing to expand our workshop series to encompass how next-generation sequencing tools are applied to conservation and wildlife management. Learn how you can participate in our next workshop, or review past workshop materials.
We strive to be a leading example in cutting-edge, applied conservation science. We often host symposia at TWS conferences, such as the upcoming 2022 conference in Spokane. Check out our upcoming events and review past seminars.
FIND A GENETICIST
At Molecular Ecology Working Group, we are dedicated to being a resource for those in conservation and wildlife management. We have created a "Find a Geneticist" database to match those who are searching for an expert to collaborate with on their project.
The Wildlife Society Annual Conference
November 6-10 in Spokane, WA
MEWG has a great line-up of cutting edge offerings for TWS in Spokane: two genomics workshops and an environmental DNA (eDNA) symposium. Many of our members will also be presenting talks and posters throughout the conference.
MEWG offers Student Travel Awards for students attending the conference.
