Tips and tricks for large-scale environmental DNA (eDNA) measurements in biodiversity monitoring
Webinar part 1 - Using the power of eDNA to scale biodiversity data: Tips and tricks by NatureMetrics
Businesses and governments are waking up to the need for better data on nature. At NatureMetrics, we believe “that which is measured improves” and our latest environmental DNA (eDNA) innovations are enabling robust biodiversity measurements and data to be generated at scale. Our DNA-based monitoring technologies boost the power and pace of existing biodiversity data flows – affordably and in a manageable time – using standardized protocols that allow for data to be comparable over space and time.
The ubiquity and uniqueness of DNA allows us to capture biodiversity data from traces of DNA left in the environment. It allows us to fill knowledge gaps on many living things, including those that are rare or difficult to survey. From bacteria to blue whales and from pole to pole, we help monitor biodiversity in contexts ranging from conservation and infrastructure to environmental impact assessments.
In this webinar, we'll show how we use QIAGEN products to unlock the potential of DNA data, how they have helped us scale our offerings, and provide top tips and tricks from our industry-leading scientists that can help you to implement and improve your workflows.
Webinar part 2 - eDNA and QIAGEN capabilities for adapting sample prep protocols
The importance and need for standardization and higher throughput of eDNA extraction from microbiome samples is increasing. Here’s where the QIAcube HT instrument can help. Designed for automated mid- to high-throughput nucleic acid purification in 96-well format, the instrument can be optimized and adapted to customer-specific manual sample extraction methods.
In this webinar, the Application Lab of QIAGEN presents its capabilities to help and support customers on how to adjust and customize automated QIAcube HT extraction protocols to their needs and requirements.
