Genetic identification of species

The Molecular Genetics Veterinary Service (SVGM) of the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona routinely identifies the species of wild fauna from biological and/or forensic samples, both invasive (tissue or blood) and non-invasive (hair, feces or urine ). He has extensive experience with wild species such as wolf, bear, cat, newt or hare, among others. For individual identification, molecular markers of the SNP type are mainly used.
