Lecture: Evolution and Conservation of Salmon, with Mike Miller

10.18.18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm

Recent studies conducted by UC Davis Associate Professor Mike Miller reveal evolutionary history of imperiled salmon stocks. Using new DNA analysis methods, researchers found that early migrating salmon populations depend on a single gene, and this genetic variant cannot be expected to easily re-evolve if lost. These new technologies for analyzing DNA may transform how […]
