Research Collaborations

The Genographic Project
The Genographic Project is seeking to chart new knowledge about the migratory history of the human species by using sophisticated laboratory and computer analysis of DNA contributed by hundreds of thousands of people from around the world.

Check out the Genographica blog here.

The New Zealand Plant Radiation Network (NZPRN)
The NZPRN is a network of researchers interested in botanical research to promote collaboration and the discussion of ideas, methods and projects. The wiki provides information on research being conducted on species radiation in the New Zealand flora. The NZPRN is open to everyone interested in plant evolutionary biology, and is free to join.
The Allan Wilson Centre AFLP Page
These pages provide resources for researchers who are currently using, or considering using, the AFLP fingerprinting technique in their research. Resources include an AFLP protocol and GenoTyper Rearranger (for the conversion of raw genotyping data into NEXUS format).
