Advances in molecular DNA sequencing in some cases allow researchers to obtain high-quality DNA samples from small quantities of hair, feathers, scales, or other body parts. These so-called noninvasive samples are an improvement over older allozyme and DNA sampling techniques that often required larger samples of tissue and blood or the destruction of the studied organism.
