Developing a Genetic Tool for Assessing Kinship in Bobolinks

Principal Investigator(s):


University of New England

Project Term:


The proposed objectives of this project were to 1) develop SSR primers specifically for Bobolinks and 2) screen the developed primers using gel assays to prove they work for Bobolinks. Funding provided by the Nuttall Ornithological Society, was utilized entirely for purchasing developed primers from the company CD-Genomics based in Shirley, New York. This project was successful in both identifying a company who could successfully develop SSR primers for Bobolinks and screening the developed primers for sufficient DNA amplification.
