Abstract:
Genomic studies of endangered species provide insights into their evolution and demographic history, reveal patterns of genomic erosion that might limit their viability, and offer tools for their effective conservation. The Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) is the most endangered felid and a unique example of a species on the brink of extinction.


Annotation The Iberian lynx genome is a collaborative effort of six research centers in Spain. It is part of the Project Zero program FGCSIC 2010 in Endangered Species and was funded by Banco Santander and Fundación General CSIC. The BioCore was involved in generation of a first annotated draft of the genome.
