Speciation is a fundamental evolutionary process, the knowledge of which is
crucial for understanding the origins of biodiversity. Genomic approaches are an
increasingly important aspect of this research field. We review current understanding of
genome-wide effects of accumulating reproductive isolation and of genomic properties
that influence the process of speciation. Building on this work, we identify emergent trends
and gaps in our understanding, propose new approaches to more fully integrate genomics
into speciation research, translate speciation theory into hypotheses that are testable using
genomic tools and provide an integrative definition of the field of speciation genomics
