(See below for workshop program and conference website.) The workshop was entitled: Use of sequencing, barcoding and other molecular techniques to study invasive weed taxonomy, systematics and genetics'. All invited speakers attended and participated by preparing oral presentations and also participating in a question and answer session and panel discussion. Presentations were generally 30 minutes in length and included the pros and cons of utilization of sequencing and barcoding for weed taxonomy and population genetics, in comparison to other more common marker based systems.
