Welcome to the Frasier Lab Website

The general focus of our lab is to improve the theory and practice of animal conservation through the use of genetics, with an emphasis on marine mammals. We are particularly interested in how the genetic characteristics of individuals shape patterns of mate choice, reproductive success, and health, and how these individual-based patterns combine to shape overall population patterns and trends. Achieving these goals often requires the development of new laboratory or analytical techniques, and therefore we also do a lot of “method” development.
