Starch Gel Electrophoresis for the Study of Population Genetics in White-Tailed Deer

Methods for the collection, preparation and extraction of tissues of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus drginianus) are given, Electrophoretic technique, buffers, gel preparation and banding patterns for 27 proteins encoded by 28 stnlctura) loci are described. In a survey of 400 deer from the Savannah River Plant, nine loci were shown to be polymorphic. The potential use ofpopulation genetics information for wildlife management programs is discussed.
