DNA sequencing of noninvasively collected hair expands the field of conservation genetics

21 julio 2015

Information embedded within DNA has long contributed to biodiversity conservation, helping to reconstruct the past history of species, assess their current status, and guide strategies for their protection. A new study shows that the entire genome of hard to study species may now be available to scientists without the need to handle or even see their study organism, opening up the field of conservation genomics to the use of noninvasive sampling techniques.img src=»http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/~4/4HlsRbHy4fs» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
