Join us at Ombrellos Kitchen and Bar after work for an opportunity to engage with professionals in a casual and informal setting.
Environmental DNA, or eDNA, is a smorgasbord of organic materials left behind by living things as they pass through their environment.
This month Professor Neil Gemmell from the Department of Anatomy will shed light on how eDNA has the potential to detect even rare, highly mobile, marine organisms. Neil and his team are testing the power of eDNA approaches for rapid and accurate assessments of biodiversity and ecosystem health in marine systems. Neil will discuss future plans to monitor our aquatic systems for fisheries, conservation, biosecurity, and other purposes including the occasional monster hunt.
