    success and survival of captive bred populations of animals it is essential to routinely monitor levels of genetic variation Pictured below are two sets of DNA profiles probe OPT 05 generated from individuals belonging to two separate colonies of New World primates Population A exhibits high levels of genetic variation as indicated by a low level of band sharing among individuals In contrast population B exhibits a low level of genetic variation as indicated by high levels of band sharing among individuals Note the nearly identical DNA profile banding patterns among individuals of population B DNA profile results can be used to generate estimates of heterozygosity genetic distance and relatedness Parentage Verification A female river otter who had been housed with two males produced a litter of three pups To verify paternity DNA profiles were produced from the female her offspring and the two males The autoradiograph below depicts DNA profiles produced using DNA probe OPT 02 Two genetic markers bands found in the DNA profile of the offspring indicated in yellow were not present in the DNA profile of the mother These two genetic markers indicated in green were observed in the DNA profile of sire 1 but not in sire 2 Other genetic markers and additional DNA probe assays corroborated the conclusion that sire 1 was the true sire of the three offspring A study was conducted to verify parentage in captive nesting pairs of scarlet and Waldrapp ibises The autoradiograph at right depicts the DNA profiles of a nesting pair of scarlet ibises and their chick Note that each genetic marker observed in the DNA profile of the chick can also be observed in the DNA profile of one or both adults thus verifying parentage No scarlet ibis chicks were found to be the product of an
