Weedy and Invasive Plant Genomics

Weedy and invasive plants have tremendous negative impact on natural and agricultural ecosystems, yet our knowledge about their genomes 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.
