International Standardization of Genetic Data

This page is currently under construction but will soon describe participation of Conservation Biology Division scientists in the activities of the inter-laboratory consortium for data standardization and sharing, Genetic Analysis of Pacific Salmonids (GAPS). By Summer of 2007, NWFSC's Science Data Management Team and the Genetics and Evolution Program will host a web application to serve spatially-referenced, standardized, genetic data to the research community.
