METHODOLOGY

-----------

DESCRIBE THE PROCESS OF COLLECTING AND GENERATING YOUR DATA

After collection of samples, DNA was extracted from the samples at University of South-eastern Norway. Followed by SNP genotyping using qPCR to collect SNP database for all the available beaver samples.

We used Applied Bioscience’s StepOne qPCR machine for SNP genotyping. For data visualization and analysis software programs such as, GenAlEx, Cervus, Co-ancestry, ML-relate etc. were used.

The current data uploaded is the raw SNP database, used for parentage analysis. The data can be visualized using Microsoft Excel.
