Genes to Geoscience

What is Genes to Geoscience?

Genes to Geoscience is a federation of research labs. Our theme is the fusion of disciplines that is underway among genomics, functional ecology, earth system science and palaeontology. Our focus is to incubate the future research leaders of the next 30 - 40 years.
