Scott Pavey Lab

The CRI Genomics leverages state-of-the-art genomics techniques to address basic and applied questions in conservation, fisheries management, evolution and ecology. This research is used to conserve biodiversity, make aquaculture more sustainable and improve management of fisheries.

The types of current projects in the lab include: genotype-by-sequencing (GBS) to determine the genetic basis of study phenotypes; identification of unique adaptations in local fish species; sequencing barcode regions to identify species for microbiomes or insect community identification, environmental DNA (uses small tissues and cells suspended in the water to identify species in a lake or river), and finally, targeted resequencing of candidate genes of many individuals simultaneously.
