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.
