Lilith has recently started her PhD on applying genomic methods to conservation. In particular Lillith is focusing on the population genomics of the reintroduced Asiatic wild ass Equus hemionus. This species provides an important case study for conservation reintroduction programs. The native E. h. hemippus became extinct in Israel and a reintroduction program began in 1982, using founder individuals that were hybrids of two different subspecies (E.h.onager and E.h.kulan). We will investigate the population genetics of this reintroduction using ddRADseq genome-wide analysis of SNPs of 30 of the original hybrid founder individuals and the current population (estimated at 300 individuals), allowing examination of effective population size, genetic diversity loss, inbreeding levels and local adaptation since release. This will provide new insights into the genetics of reintroductions and also a detailed database to support successful management of E. hemionus.
