Plain Language Summary

The purpose of this invited manuscript is to review the use of genomic tools to understand the pattern and process of biological invasion. Specifically, we focus on the implementation of genomic tools within a management and policy framework. We discuss what how these tools can be integrated into downstream management frameworks and what barriers may exist to limit their use.One of our key messages is that genomic initiatives must involve end users from the outset. When end users are involved from the beginning, there is great chance of successful uptake and implementation at the end of the project.This manuscript speaks to both researchers and end users, acting as a bridge between conceptualization and implementation.
