Journal Article
Li, J., Lawson Handley, L. J., Read, D. S., & Hänfling, B. (2018). The effect of filtration method on the efficiency of environmental DNA capture and quantification via metabarcoding. Molecular Ecology Resources, 18(5), 1102-1114. doi:10.1111/1755-0998.12899

© 2018 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. Environmental DNA (eDNA) is a promising tool for rapid and noninvasive biodiversity monitoring. eDNA density is low in environmental samples, and a capture method, such as filtration, is often required to concentrate e... Read More

Environmental DNA metabarcoding of lake fish communities reflects long-term data from established survey methods (2016)
Journal Article
Hahn, C., Blackman, R. C., Hänfling, B., Lawson Handley, L., Li, J., Nichols, P., …Winfield, I. J. (2016). Environmental DNA metabarcoding of lake fish communities reflects long-term data from established survey methods. Molecular ecology, 25(13), (3101-3119). doi:10.1111/mec.13660. ISSN 0962-1083

Organisms continuously release DNA into their environments via shed cells, excreta, gametes and decaying material. Analysis of this ‘environmental DNA’ (eDNA) is revolutionizing biodiversity monitoring. eDNA outperforms many established survey method... Read More
