Week 7 Notes Genome Sequencing Conservation and Genome Sequencing o In situ conservation- protecting an endangered animal in their natural habitats o Ex situ conservation- off-site conservation when an animal’s population has diminished to a critical level Ironic that we have the technology to study animals now but we are losing them at a great rate. Genome Sequencing Rapid expansion of the genome Why sequence? Blueprint for what genomes are made up of Gain a better understanding of what the genome does. Comparative Genomics Identifying the functional elements of the human genome Allows us to visualize genetic variation and mutational processes. Conservation Genomics- Help to develop insights to maximize potential successes of current gene pool conservation efforts. Allows us to learn more about the biology of animals which is critical for their survival Example: what they eat, how they mate, their family structures Applications of Conservation Genomics Animal health Immune functions and regulations, disease diagnosis. Population Assessments Bottlenecks, selective sweeps, recent mutational history

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
