Weedy and Invasive Plant Genomics

Weedy and invasive plants are probably the plants with the most economic impact worldwide, yet our knowledge about their genomes are still is not very well developed. This workshop continues to update the state of technology and science of genomics, transcriptomics, and molecular genetics of weedy and invasive plants and traits of importance.
