Leveraging challenging DNA for wildlife conservation and management
My research group answers timely questions by tapping into information in the DNA that organisms leave behind.
We do so using sophisticated genetic sequencing methods, some of which are newly emerging. Our foci are outlined below.
Species from Feces: Biodiversity discovery, host and diet identification, and pathogen detection
Risk to White-nose Syndrome
Rabies in an Urban Interface
Mines and windfarms
Mammals and then some (birds, plants, microbes)
