Item Identification

Title: Genetic Analysis Database
Status: In Work

Samples of skin and other tissues are collected from marine mammals along the U.S. east coast by a variety of researchers. Samples may be collected from live animals through remote biopsy or live-capture, stranded animals, or animals captured incidentally during fishery operations. DNA is extracted from these samples, sequenced, and analyzed using a variety of methods to support phylogenetic studies, stock delineation studies, and a variety of other analyses related to cetacean genetics in U.S. waters. These data sets include the sequence and other genetic data collected from these samples along with analytical results. These data contribute to delineation of stocks described in annual Marine Mammal Protection Act stock assessment reports.


To study genetic relationships and phylogeny of ceteceans.


Databases of genetic data collected from marine mammal tissue samples including sexes, genetic sequence data, microsattellite markers, sNPs, etc. Collected data are in a variety of formats with variable levels of QA/QC depending upon the project status. Some data records may be confidential as the database includes information collected by students and guest researchers working in the lab.
