Genomic ancestry in a non-model wildlife species at risk, the Eastern Wolf (2014)


Bioproducts & Environment


Led by Brent Patterson and Linda Rutledge, Trent University and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry (OMNRF), this project aims to improve wolf conservation in Ontario. The research team will be collaborating with scientists at Princeton University to validate and optimize a rapid and efficient genetic mapping approach on the Eastern Wolf, which has the potential to make genomics more accessible to labs with limited resources and provide researchers with an effective, low-cost methodology for genomic analysis of fish and wildlife populations.
