In the beginning...

This is the starting point of the blog of ChallenGen Project, a project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness which aims at shedding light on some hot topics involving the application of genetic and genomic tools to marine ecology. Project ChallenGen is structured into three broad research lines, representing current challenges for marine ecologists:

1. To tackle and mitigate the problem of introduced species.
2. To develop new tools for biodiversity assessment.
3. To predict foreseeable changes in a scenario of increasing temperature.
