The Fort Collins Science Center has developed a new Web site for its Molecular Ecology Laboratory, dedicated to conservation genetics research, where FORT geneticists employ the tools and concepts of molecular genetics to address a variety of complex wildlife management questions and conservation issues. Working with natural resource managers and other scientists, FORT geneticists design and implement molecular genetic studies to document both the level of genetic diversity and the distribution of genetic variation within and among individuals, populations, and species. Information from these studies is used to support wildlife management planning and conservation actions. The new Web site explains the real-world applications of this work, describes current and past projects, and provides published resources and contact information.
