During October 1st – December 19th, 2019, I spent a part of my obligatory international internship in the Genomic Variation Lab of Department of Animal Science (UC Davis, California). I was involved in microsatellite genotyping of white sturgeon mosaics and wild catches of the same fish species from Kootenay river. In the future, I expect next cooperation with the director of the lab, Andrea Schreier, Ph.D.
