Presented by the Temporal Genomics Working Group, as part of the Research Coordinated Network for Evolution in Changing Seas.

Members of the RCN for Evolution in Changing Seas and the ecology & evolution community at large are invited to participate in a Twitter symposium during the first full week in July 2021. This Twitter symposium is aimed specifically at researchers interested in, or currently utilizing, temporal genomics methods and practices.

This Twitter symposium will provide:

Presentation style:

Presentation guidelines:

The symposium will be moderated by the RCN for Evolution in Changing Sea’s Twitter account (@evolvingseas). To catch all the action, be sure to follow the RCN Twitter account and/or the symposium hashtag (#TempGen2021Tweets). @evolvingseas will tweet out the symposium schedule, introduce each presenter at the time of their presentation, and retweet the first tweet in each presentation thread.
