    Event description

    Exploring potential & challenges of environmental DNA

    Speaker: Vilma Perez

    Topic:  DNA preserved in environmental samples, such as subsurface sediments and soil (environmental DNA), is a powerful tool for collecting genomic information from a wide range of species, including humans. In this presentation, I will discuss the potential of this field, while also addressing the challenges that require careful consideration in any research involving environmental DNA.

    Brief:  Vilma is a microbial ecologist at the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA, UoA. Her research focuses on reconstructing microbial communities from present and past environments using environmental DNA techniques. Her objective is to use this information as bioindicators, providing insights into how environments have changed or responded to disturbances over time.

    This session will be recorded and shared with those who register.

    Series details
