Research

There are still many questions to be answered concerning this new approach to monitoring and species detection. For example, can the technique be used for detecting all species? Can we develop primers for other species? Will it be possible to assess a species’ density in a water body using the eDNA technique on a water sample? What are the effects of abiotic factors like temperature, pH, conductivity etc on the amount of eDNA in the water. When, where and what is the most effective way of sampling?

Collaborative research is being carried out combining the analytical expertise of SPYGEN in genetics and bioinformatics with the thorough knowledge of the ecology and distribution of species of the nature conservation organizations, RAVON, Dutch Butterfly Conservation (as also dragonflies and moths) and the Dutch Mammal Society. Together we guarantee high quality research with the highest possible expertise.

If you have ideas for research please feel free to contact RAVON to talk about the possibilities.
