Plain Language Summary

Genomic provides a powerful suite of tools to explore the process of biological invasion. We describe how genomics can provide greater insight into biological invasions by improving diagnostics, determining routes of invasion, assessing the probability of establishment, and identify evidence of adaptation. This knowledge can help fill knowledge gaps in our understanding of biological invasions and inform biosurveillance efforts. This manuscript is complementary to a second manuscript that looks at integration of genomic tools within a management and regulatory framework.
