Hello! My name is Matias Fernandez and I am interested in the post-glacial migration dynamics of conifers in the Pacific-Northwest. I am using a novel genomic analysis technique called RAD-Seq (Restriction-site Associated DNA Sequencing) to subsample the huge genomes of western redcedar and mountain hemlock populations. In doing so I hope to find hundreds of single-nucleotide-polymorphisms (SNP’s) with which to compare and make inferences by.
