PBI Environmental DNA (eDNA) Webinar Series
Webinar I: Onsite Environmental DNA Detection
THE FUTURE IS HERE!
In this webinar, we provide an overview of environmental DNA (eDNA) biomonitoring, and how Precision Biomonitoring has revolutionized the eDNA approach with gold-standard assay design and validation, and onsite detection of target species.
Webinar II: Understanding the Ecology of eDNA
WHY IS IT SO CRUCIAL?
In the second webinar of the Precision Biomonitoring Webinar Series, we dive deep into the ecology of eDNA; how it behaves in the environment, how ecological factors influence survey design and probability of target eDNA detection, and how the team at Precision Biomonitoring uses these complex features to design surveys.
Webinar III: For what applications can I reliably use environmental DNA methods?
LEARN FROM REAL-LIFE CASE STUDIES
Learn about which application is applications is eDNA proven to be useful, discuss three validated case studies on:
1) A validation study of the elusive, and endangered Jefferson Salamander.
2) Monitor invasive species in Nova Scotia, Canada, and how eDNA surveys can help to make informed decision about invasive species management for Chain Pickerel and Smallmouth Bass.
3) Comparative study between conventional biomonitoring methods for Brook Trout.
Webinar IV: Pushing the Boundaries of eDNA
WITH SPECIAL GUEST DR. ROBERT HANNER
In the fourth webinar of the Precision Biomonitoring Webinar Series, we welcome associate professor and co-founder Dr. Robert Hanner to discuss important topics uprising in the eDNA community:
1)What applications eDNA is gaining broad acceptance in
2)When metabarcoding is more suitable than qPCR
3)Could eDNA assess population abundance?
4)What confidence level should I have in eDNA survey results?
Webinar V: Metabarcoding or Targeted qPCR?
WITH SPECIAL GUEST STEVE CROOKES AND RÉMI MAGLIONE
In this installment of PBIs webinar series you’ll learn:
1) Metabarcoding basics for eDNA surveys
2) When we prefer to use metabarcoding
3) When we prefer to use targeted qPCR, and
4) Future directions
With our experts Steve Crookes (Co-founder and CTO- Precision Biomonitoring) and Rémi Maglione (Co-founder Metagenomist- AgriSeq Solutions)
