eDNA - interesting aquatic technology
« on: June 06, 2013, 08:41:46 PM »
What is eDNA?

 All organisms shed genetic material into their environment through feces, mucus and urine. This DNA is known as environmental DNA or eDNA. Just as how forensic scientists use DNA to prove presence at a crime scene, eDNA can be used to detect aquatic organisms.
