Biologists from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will collect the samples; the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance and cloning company, ViaGen Pets & Equine will perform the cryopreservation, genome sequencing, and cell line creation. These cell samples will be stored in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's national repository for cryopreservation. Read the full article
