Photo of New technologies enable researchers to identify genetic differences within a species, for example, identifying populations from different regions. This diagram of the fisher mitochondrial genome shows the location of genes (blue, red, purple), and variable nucleotide positions (tick marks, inner circle). Richard Cronn, Forest Service
