Using Genetics to Track CWD in Arkansas Deer

May 17, 2018

University of Arkansas biologists Marlis and Michael Douglas are using genetic information to study how groups of white-tailed deer are related throughout the state, so they can better track the movement of animals that have chronic wasting disease. The couple’s research will also determine which groups of deer are less susceptible to CWD, and help inform future strategies for managing the disease in Arkansas deer.
