Environmental DNA (eDNA) monitoring for invasive non-native species to protect marine biodiversity

PhD Aims:

  • To better understand the limitation of eDNA assays ability detect invasive species.

PhD Objectives:

  • Carry out experiments that demonstrate the capability of using (eDNA) to detect invasive non-native species, in an aquaculture setting.

  • Investigate the use of nanopore HTS in eDNA studies.

  • Compare different methodologies of eDNA sampling.
