Conservation genomics of the Endangered North Atlantic right whale

Carla Crossman


I am a PhD Candidate working with Dr. Tim Frasier at Saint Mary's University. I am investigating the extent and impact of inbreeding depression in North Atlantic right whales using ddRAD sequencing. I will also be using whole genome sequencing to reconstruct the demographic history of both North Atlantic and Southern right whales.
