Take a close look at the Evolution and Conservation of Salmon with UC Davis Associate Professor Mike Miller. Using new DNA analysis methods, researchers found that early migrating salmon populations depend on a single gene, and this genetic variant cannot be expected to easily re-evolve if lost. These new technologies for analyzing DNA may transform how imperiled species are considered and managed for conservation protection. These technologies can be applied to a wide range of species around the world.
