A unique combination of disciplines is emerging--evolutionary and ecological functional genomics--which focuses on the genes that affect ecological success and evolutionary fitness in natural environments and populations. Already this approach has provided new insights that were not available from its disciplinary components in isolation. However, future advances will necessitate the re-engineering of scientific attitudes, training and institutions, to achieve extensive multidisciplinarity.
