Learning from Trout DNA

Helen Neville, TU’s senior scientist, recently sat down with Tom Rosenbauer from Orvis for one of his podcast episodes to converse about the role of genetics in trout science and what has been learned in the past decade.

Some of Helen’s research along with other TU scientists have created tools that can tell us how closely two trout populations are related, how hatchery trout interbreed with wild populations and how various subspecies of trout have evolved.

You’re sure to learn quite a bit from Helen and Tom’s discussion, so dive right in and enjoy.
