The overall goal of this project is to characterize the beluga immune response at the molecular level utilizing archived and fresh blood and skin samples collected in association with different stressors. In the long term, selected biomarkers found to be informative will be utilized in skin, potentially eliminating the need for blood sampling from wild populations.
