Understanding biological resilience (BIORESILIENCE)

Understanding why and how some species are able to cope or even thrive in the face of rapid environmental change (biological resilience) has key implications for ecosystem services, food production and societal well-being.

Researchers from across the life sciences will here harness the revolutionary potential of environmental and genomic Big Data to make sense of our living world and detail pathways for resilience at the level of genomes, individuals, populations, species and ecosystems.

Number of participating PI’s at start: 46

Partner organisations: Aalto University, Natural Resources Institute Finland, Duke University, Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
