Environmental DNA (eDNA)

Overview of Services

The eDNA Service Center offers processing of environmental DNA samples, assay development, field surveys and training services. The equipment housed in the center will allow users to perform fluorescence-based qPCR analyses, for quantifying DNA concentration and abundances, and plate preparation. In time, the center will also offer nextgen-sequencing eDNA services, including preparation of samples and on-site sequencing of eDNA metabardcodes.
