Population Genomics of Fungal and Oomycete Diseases of Animals and Plants

May 7th, 2017 to May 11th, 2017

The population genomics of emerging fungal and oomycete pathogens is a dynamic and rapidly growing area of research. New datasets, new sequencing methodologies and new analytical methods are enabling a deeper understanding of the evolutionary processes driving the emergence of fungal and oomycete pathogens. This conference aims to enrich our understanding of the processes driving the evolution of plant, animal and human pathogens, with an over-riding goal of identifying the genomic changes responsible for adaptation to novel hosts and environments. A secondary goal will be to determine how the relevant genes (and their underlying functions) vary along ecological/agronomic gradients associated with host specialization, including quantitative adaptation to host resistance. Another important goal is to facilitate networking of key scientists working on fungal and oomycete diseases of plants, animals and humans. The conference will be oriented around genome-based approaches, including; 1) using population genomics to understand pathogen emergence and host specialization, 2) using genome-wide association studies to identify key genes and genomic regions associated with pathogen local adaptation, 3) using population genomics to understand pathogen divergence/speciation, 4) developing new analytical methods for population genomic analyses.
