Conservation Genetics symposium

A REMINDER...  The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation's Spring
Symposium, Conservation Genetics in the Age of Genomics takes place next
week, Wednesday - Friday, April 4 - 6, at  the American Museum of Natural
History.  Can Biotechnology Save the World's Species? Wednesday, 4
April     7:00 - 9:00 pm     Main Auditorium (77th Street Entrance) Jeremy
Rifkin, President of the Foundation on Economic Trends, considers the
benefits, risks, and limitations of cloning, genetic engineering, and
genomics in the conservation of biodiversity. Joining him in a discussion
on the future of conservation genetics are Val Giddings, Vice-President for
Food and Agriculture at the Biotechnology Industry Organization, Joshua
Ginsberg, Director for Asia Programs at the Wildlife Conservation Society,
and Anne R. Kapuscinski, Director of the Institute for Social, Economic and
Ecological Sustainability.  $12 ($10 AMNH and WCS Members) Special $5
Student Rate for school groups School groups should contact Nat Johnson in
the Education Department at 212-769-5176. Others may reserve by calling
212-769-5200 or pay at the door.   Conservation Genetics in the Age of
Genomics (two full-day scientific sessions) Thursday, 5 April        8:00
am - 5:30 pm     American Museum of Natural History This introduction to
the issues relating to genetic research in conservation biology will
examine the role of small populations as conservation models, and explore
the use of systematics and population genetics in determining management
units.  Friday, 6 April  9:00 am - 4:00 pm        American Museum of
Natural History Speakers will discuss the role of expanding genomic
technologies on the future of conservation genetics. Topics include the
impact of databases, sequencing technology, gamete repositories, and
genetic modification of domestic species on the field of conservation
genetics. The future of conservation biology will be examined through the
lens of genetics-connecting genetics with broader issues of ecology,
biodiversity, human history, landscape changes, and species recovery.
Thursday/Friday Registration Fees: $125 ($100 AMNH and WCS members) $75
Students and Seniors Call 212-769-5200 to register, or pay at the door.
