Genomic datasets will directly contribute to designing future in situ conservation networks and help prioritise populations to archive ex-situ, especially for endemic species and the ones with low population size, it will be possible to identify a population/ individuals with high adaptation potential
“In terms of volume, domestic sewage contributes to the bulk of the pollution. Most households in Bengaluru don’t connect their sewage to the lines provided by the civic authorities.
