The Northeast Wildlife DNA Laboratory is a research entity of East Stroudsburg University.
The lab conducts various research projects in the area of infection diseases, population genetics and surveillance. Research conducted at the lab is in cooperation with outside agencies, which include wildlife forensics, population management and wildlife diseases.
The DNA lab conducts multidisciplinary research evaluating many sample types using molecular techniques targeting DNA and/or RNA. Our current research focuses on genetic application for a variety of wildlife species e.g. black bears, river otter, bobcats, white-tailed deer, turkeys, ruffed grouse, trout and rattlesnakes. These projects are looking at high-profile animals that are either threatened, endangered, or require population management.
