Mapping the Genomes of Crocodiles and Alligators -- Science Nation

Mapping the Genomes of Crocodiles and Alligators--It's Not for the Faint of Heart!

David Ray never turns his back on his research, and with good reason! Ray and his team study alligators, crocodiles, and bats, among other creatures. The multidisciplinary team from several universities is mapping crocodile and alligator genomes. The research could expand our knowledge well beyond crocodilians to other reptiles, birds, and even dinosaurs.
