Building a polar bear SNP chip
- This paper documents the development of a new tool for assessing genome-wide variation in polar bears, with higher resolution than the genetic markers that have previously been used.
Polar bear identical twins, adoptions, and inbreeding
- We generated a large multigenerational pedigree (i.e., family tree) of more than 4000 polar bears for future research into genetics and breeding systems. During this process, we discovered the firs...
Polar bear population structure and gene flow
- A recent population genetics study of the worldwide polar bear population suggested different population structure than has previously been reported and large-scale movement of polar bears in respo...
