Ernest Laboratory, University of Wyoming
The Ernest Lab uses ecological tools – including whole genome analysis for wild animals and their disease pathogens, analysis of population genetics, and epidemiology – to understand how diseases affect wildlife populations. The Ernest lab is contributing to the next generation sequencing and genomic analysis of California pumas and, with UC Davis Boyce Lab has provided blood samples for pathogen analysis.
