Southeast Fisheries Science Center, 2022: Genetic Analysis Database,

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.

Access Information

Security Class: Sensitive
Data Access Procedure:

The data will be available from a public web server once an access methodology has been developed.

Data Access Constraints:

Waiver Needed

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Intensive QA/QC procedures are employed during the processing and handling of samples to avoid cross-contamination. Individual sequences are reviewed and verified against standards to ensure data integrity and quality. QA/QC procedures may vary among projects based upon the study goals of individual contributors.

Data Management

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: No
Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management: 0
Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?: No
Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?: No
If Distributor (Data Hosting Service) is Needed, Please Indicate: No
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Dissemination: 365
If Delay is Longer than Latency of Automated Processing, Indicate Under What Authority Data Access is Delayed:


Actual or Planned Long-Term Data Archive Location: To Be Determined
If To Be Determined, Unable to Archive, or No Archiving Intended, Explain:

The archival process is currently under development.

Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Archiving: 365
How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

The data resides on a secure government network requiring multi-factor authentication for network access.


Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 283895

Tissue samples along with information about their collection are contributed by researchers. The DNA is extracted from these tissues and DNA sequence or other data are collected. The resulting data are incorporated into analyses of species identification, sex determination, or stock delineation.
