Welcome to the Laboratory of Melanie Culver

Culver Lab members study the genetics of wild populations. Much of our research focuses on large predatory mammal species (puma and Mexican grey wolf, in particular); although, lab members have also led projects on reptile, bird, fish, and invertebrate species.

Our specialties include:
  •     Application of non-invasive sampling techniques
  •     Ancient DNA analysis
  •     Next generation sequencing applications in conservation
