What is Genes to Geoscience?

Genes to Geoscience is a federation of research labs. Our theme is the fusion of disciplines that is underway among genomics, functional ecology, earth system science and palaeontology. Our focus is to incubate the future research leaders of the next 30 - 40 years.

One of the main activities in Genes to Geoscience is our Research Enrichment Program (GGREP). GGREP is a program of intensive Masterclasses, workshops and modules for postgraduate students, postdocs and academics. The Program encourages researches towards career-long innovation, leadership, policy and research.
