Development of Molecular Markers for Novel Organisms

We have employed laboratory techniques to quickly and reliably develop DNA markers, specifically microsatellites for novel organisms in order to assay for genetic variation. We also have the capability to assay AFLP's for a variety of organisms. Yale affiliates and Research Scientists from the broader scientific community that need to develop enriched microsatellite libraries may come to our laboratory to receive laboratory training and to generate preliminary data, when funding is available or using their own funds. Data can then be assessed to predict the feasibility of their research project. For Yale affiliates funding support may be available from the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies, Conservation Genetics and Molecular Systematics Laboratory.
