The focus of the research in our laboratory is conserving genetic diversity in wild and captive populations of fish and wildlife. We view genetics as an important tool in the conservation biology toolbox, providing managers and biologists with answers that help guide management decisions. In order to make our research directly applicable to on-the-ground conservation, we are working closely with agencies to identify critical research needs for native species and to translate our results into management actions. As new technologies become available to conservation geneticists, we are beginning to apply genomic approaches to better understand biodiversity.

Lucas Price presents at Undergraduate Research Day

Student Lucas Price presented a poster on his research at the Undergraduate Research Day at the State Capitol. His project looks at genetic differences between lake sturgeon in the St. Lawrence River, including the estuary. It was a great opportunity to interact with legislators and other researchers from across the state.
