Our assays

We have designed and validated probe-based qPCR assays for a number of species, many of them amphibians of western North America. Here is a list of those that are running that had not been published as of 2020 (hoping to update this soon). If you are working on these species and want to collaborate with us, you can find us at: wsu.ednalab at
