The ongoing transition at an exponential speed from Conservation genetics to Conservation genomics

Pertoldi Cino, Randi Ettore


Conservation genetic disciplines have greatly progressed during the last thirty years, mainly thanks to the continuous development of molecular biological knowledge and the implementation of molecular tools used to describe diversity at the DNA level. The ongoing transition from Conservation genetics to Conservation genomics is showing to increase at an exponential speed as the integrated use of various kinds of molecular genetic data and bioinformatic approaches may improve our theoretical knowledge and practical approaches in the conservation and wise use of biodiversity. Aim of this mini-review is to push forward the ongoing transition, bearing in mind that most of the applied conservation programs would not need entire genomic data set, which are still expensive and time consuming
