• landscape genetics
  • Current projects include analyses of tiger salamander ( Ambystoma tigrinum ) hybrid zones using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), and landscape genetics of several California amphibian species ( Ambystoma californiense, Bufo boreas, Pseudacris regilla, Rana aurora, and Taricha torosa ) using microsatellites.

  • This contrasts with classical genetics, which works mostly on crosses between laboratory strains, and DNA sequence analysis , which studies genes at the molecular level. (wikipedia.org)
  • significance
  • As a young researcher in Russia, Dobzhansky had been influenced by Sergei Chetverikov , who also deserves to be remembered as a founder of genetics in the field, though his significance was not appreciated until much later. (wikipedia.org)
