Application of Environmental DNA (eDNA) Metabarcoding in Aquaculture Science
November 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The University of Maine Aquaculture Research Institute will host Yuan Liu, a biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, as part of the 2018–2019 SEANET Speaker Series. Liu will deliver the free talk, “Application of Environmental DNA (eDNA) Metabarcoding in Aquaculture Science.”
Using high throughput sequencing on partial mitochondrial rDNA amplicons from aquatic environmental DNA (eDNA) samples, Liu is investigating finfish communities associated with different oyster farming techniques. The research will provide scientific evidence to evaluate the ecosystem service provided by aquaculture gear.
