From conservation genetics to conservation genomics.

  title={From conservation genetics to conservation genomics.},
  author={Craig Robert Primmer},
  journal={Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences},
Although the application of population and evolutionary genetic theory and methods to address issues of conservation relevance has a long history, the formalization of conservation genetics as a research field is still relatively recent. One of the periodic catalysts for increased research effort in the field has been advances in molecular technologies, leading to an increasingly wider variety of molecular markers for application in conservation genetic studies. To date, genetic methods have… CONTINUE READING
