Can we use eDNA as an ‘environmental magnifying-glass’?
An innovative idea submitted by Bangor University has been selected as one of eight projects selected within four “idea” areas to be funded by the Natural Environment Research Council’s (NERC) new “Highlight Topic” research funding stream. Based on their research, the scientific community were invited to subject project areas which would place environmental science at the heart of the sustainable management of the planet. “Environmental DNA: a tool for 21st century ecology”, the new idea suggested by Bangor University in collaboration with other academics and stakeholders, was among around 150 submissions. The successful project will assess how we can use new genetic techniques to measure biodiversity.
