Title: Genetic Sample Inventory
Status: In Work

This database archives genetic tissue samples from marine mammals collected primarily from the U.S. east coast. The collection includes samples from field programs, fisheries bycatch, and stranding data. A range of researchers have contributed samples to this archive, so some of the data records are confidential. Data includes field identification numbers, location and date information, collection information, and disposition of samples. These samples are primarily intended to support analyses of the genetic relationships and phylogeny of cetaceans in U.S. and Caribbean waters.
