The expansion of conservation genetics

  title={The expansion of conservation genetics},
  author={Robert DeSalle and George Amato},
  journal={Nature Reviews Genetics},
The 'crisis discipline' of conservation biology has voraciously incorporated many technologies to speed up and increase the accuracy of conservation decision-making. Genetic approaches to characterizing endangered species or areas that contain endangered species are prime examples of this. Technical advances in areas such as high-throughput sequencing, microsatellite analysis and non-invasive DNA sampling have led to a much-expanded role for genetics in conservation. Such expansion will allow… CONTINUE READING
