Conservation Genetics Community of Practice
 

Where are the USFWS Conservation Genetic Labs and what do they do?

Five USFWS laboratories* provide conservation genetics research and support to the Service and its partners. The labs provide sampling guidance, genetic data generation, and interpretation of genetic data for management, conservation and policy issues. Using a suite of molecular techniques, the labs address a variety of issues, such as management of hatchery broodstocks, characterization of population structure, and identification of management and conservation units.

* In addition, the labs collaborate with the Genetics Section of the USFWS National Fish and Wildlife Forensic Laboratory (Office of Law Enforcement) in Ashland, OR.

For more information concerning conservation genetics of imperiled aquatic species please contact one of the regional geneticists.
