Owen joins the SeaDNA Project

Owen has a wealth of experience in marine biology and the application of molecular techniques, most recently using this knowledge in metabarcoding of eDNA from marine environments in Spain – a perfect background for SeaDNA. Owen and the SeaDNA team will develop new non-invasive genetic biomonitoring techniques for assessing biodiversity in marine ecosystems. Owen outlines: "We are targeting detection and characterisation mainly of fish communities (but also of other organisms such as invertebrates, algae or microbes) by analysing the environmental DNA which remains in the water, left away by the living organisms that inhabit thes
