Contemporary and retrospective genomic analyses of tiger and white sharks

img_6238Thanks to the Brisbane Times for an accurate summary of a new project starting at MFL in Jan 2017 funded by the Australian Research Council. The project will use detailed genomic analyses on living and long-dead tiger and white sharks to provide new information about the spatial and temporal dimensions of populations to inform conservation and management. Its a collaborative effort between UQ (Mike Bennett, Carlos Bustamante and Jenny Ovenden), Flinders University (Charlie Huveneers) and the Danish Technical University (Einar Nielsen and team).
