Ocean Genomics Horizon Scan

Phase 2: September 2018 – January 2019

Now in Process

In Phase 1 of this “Ocean Genomics Horizon Scan,” Revive & Restore conducted a rapid, yet extensive, interview process and literature review to identify potential areas where genetic rescue and synthetic biology could be applied to restore ocean health and bio-abundance. This work uncovered several areas where targeted funding/investment could make a significant impact.

That initial report is now being extended into Phase 2: a rapid sprint to fill in any gaps in the first Phase and to further evaluate some of the initially-selected project areas. This Phase 2 work will select and develop specific recommendations for targeted funding; we intend this Horizon Scan to be broadly available as a call to action to funders for the development of new tools for ocean conservation.
