I. Data generation (per-sample analyses):
Covering most wildlife species, we offer a wide range of genetic and genomic services ranging from laboratory analysis to bioinformatic processing.
Per-sample analyses of noninvasive and high-quality tissue sources
|Service||Sample types||Markers||Example applications|
|Species typing||Fecal, hair, feather, tissue, blood||mtDNA||Occupancy, capture-recapture|
|Individual/sex-genotyping||Fecal, hair, feather, tissue, blood||SNPs, microsatellites||Capture-recapture|
|Relatedness, familial relationships||Fecal, hair, feather, tissue, blood||SNPs, microsatellites||Reproduction monitoring, behavioral ecology|
|Dietary analysis (metabarcoding)||Fecal, ingesta||mtDNA, chloroplast DNA||Ecological studies|
Genomic analyses and bioinformatic processing
|Whole genome sequencing||Tissue, blood||Library preparation, sequencing||Sample-specific sequencing read files (fastq files)|
|Reduced representation sequencing||Tissue, blood||Library preparation, sequencing||Sample-specific sequencing read files (fastq files)|
|Bioinformatic processing of sequencing reads||Trimming, alignment to reference genome (or deNovo), variant calling||vcf/ped/map files|
II. Marker development:
III. Data analysis:
Most standard applications of genetic and genomic data.
IV. Research projects:
We frequently partner with federal, state, tribal, and private wildlife managers and field researchers, including at academic institutions, adding genetic and genomic capabilities and expertise to research teams.
