In 2016, the Canadian Rivers Institute’s Genomics Laboratory opened at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John. This state-of-the-art genomics lab specializes in Aquatic Molecular Ecology and Ecological Genomics. The lab is equipped to perform DNA isolation and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) library preparation, as well as bioinformatics. The Lab’s mission is to address basic and applied questions in conservation, fisheries management, evolution and ecology. Dr. Scott Pavey is the Lab’s director, as well as an Assistant Professor at the University of New Brunswick and a Canada Research Chair.
