Research Projects

I am using Restriction site Associated DNA Sequencing (RAD Seq) technology to investigate genetic components of domestication in a conservation Delta smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus ) hatchery. We will compare the wild and hatchery populations over the last 10 generations to understand why the survival of offspring from crosses offspring from one or two wild parents is lower offspring from two cultured parents.
