Dr. Jazlyn Mooney Published a Paper

Dr. Jazlyn Mooney published a paper “Chromosome-level assembly of the gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) confirms the basal loss of PRDM9 in Canidae”. The study presents the most complete reference genome available to date for non-domestic canids, and lays the groundwork for future studies to describe past and present population dynamics, including the delineation of evolutionarily significant units of management relevance.

Dr. Jazlyn Mooney also published a paper titled “Counting the genetic ancestors from source populations in members of an admixed population”. The study expands on the recent paper (Mooney et al 2023, Genetics) and compares the patterns in the numbers of genealogical and genetic ancestors across the generations. Read this paper here.
