Using Ecological Genomics to Identify Genes Responsible for Heat Tolerance in the Era of Global Warming
Sacramento State University
Dr. Lani Gleason is a marine biologist whose research in ecological genomics focuses on an intertidal marine snail. In this presentation, she begins by explaining how global warming threatens intertidal organisms, and how the gene flow opposes local adaptation to that climate change. She then discusses her research about how changes in gene expression and sequence between the snail’s Northern California and Southern California populations explain local adaptation to heat stress.
