What is GEM3?

GEM3 is a statewide NSF EPSCoR research program aimed at discovering fundamental knowledge of genetic mechanisms that can predict how organisms adapt to changing environments and thus inform evidence based management of natural resources.

We are studying two key taxa: one aquatic (redband trout) and one terrestrial (sagebrush). These taxa are integral to ecosystems in the American West, and are central to land-use management decisions that drive the economy of the region.
