Genetic Analyzes for Environmental Protection Team deals with conservation genetics. This is the area combining population genetics , molecular ecology and phylogenetics. Basing on such genetics markers as : nucleotide sequence of specific part of mtDNA and microsatellite sequences and SNP - genetic polymorphism of tested species is evaluated, genetic relationship between specimen is established and the best parental population for reproducing species is chosen.
It is also possible to define hybridisation range between autochthonic and introduced species and identity what is the genes flow between populations.
Currently Genetic Analyzes for Environmental Protection Team is caring out projects aimed at :
creating real basis for restitution in Poland two extinct fish species : atlantic sturgeon and salmon;
restoration of certa (Vimba vimba) population in Oder river
