Plain Language Summary

Genomic provides a powerful suite of tools to explore the process of biological invasion among forest alien invasives. 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. We outline a bioinformatics pipeline that will translate genomic information into knowledge that can inform management decisions for invasive species. the manuscript also provides a horizon scan of new and emerging genomic approaches that will provide even greater insight to the process of invasion.
