Emerging techniques to quantify the effects of environmental change in Bay-Delta organisms
The San Francisco Bay Delta system represents one of the most ecologically and economically diverse and important ecosystems in the world. It has been
the focus of significant research and monitoring efforts for a long time and represents a well-studied system with many activities taking place to preserve its ecological health while maximizing its economic value. This symposium will present novel high-throughput analytical approaches, technologies, and workflows that support broaderand more in-depth characterization of environmental conditions on Bay-Delta organisms than previously possible. In particular, modern approaches for high-throughput molecular phenotyping (e.g. proteomics), population genomics, and physiological phenotyping will be presented. In addition, the seminar will explore how these approaches can be linked to and integrated with ongoing high-throughput environmental monitoring programs and biological surveys of Bay-Delta organisms. A panel discussion will explore ways of finding better linkages in this regard and inform participants about needs and opportunities for leveraging the full potential of modern high-throughput analytical technologies. Such integration will enable us to much more comprehensively assess how specific changes in the environment affect Bay-Delta organisms and inform sustainable management practices.
