Assisting Personnel: Lorenz Hauser, Lisa Seeb, Bill Templin

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring

Abstract: This is a demonstration project to document the value and low risk of the high density sequencing approach for population genetics study. We propose to sequence the transcribed genome of a single reference individual, report the sequence that will include SNPs in many thousands of genes, and annotate those genes that belong to gene families known to respond to oil exposure and disease.
