Sequenced quoll genome a new tool for conservation

European colonists mistakenly labelled quolls as “native cats” when in fact they are among Australia’s last living carnivorous marsupials. Often overshadowed by their better-known cousins the Tasmanian Devils and the extinct Tasmanian Tiger (thylacine), quolls have a 15 million year history in Australia, successfully balancing shifting ecosystems by suppressing prey…
