Genetic analysis of lynx samples

Posted - Nov 15, 2018

Coworkers in the field have collected many noninvasive genetic samples – scats, hair, urine in the snow, saliva from prey animals. In our genetic bank we also archive tissue samples from dead animals and buccal swab samples taken from collared animals. All these samples are in final stages of analysis. Sampling in the field still continues.
