Leveraging eDNA Technology

By |2023-07-12T18:36:09+00:00June 20, 2023|Biodiversity|

Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis has emerged as a valuable tool for assessing marine biodiversity. By extracting DNA from water samples, scientists can amplify and sequence specific genetic markers to identify the organisms that have left their genetic material behind. This method can provide a comprehensive picture of the species composition, including those that are rare, cryptic, or difficult to observe directly.
