Analytics for Water Action - AWA

Nitrate oversaturation remains a pressing issue in the health of affected ecosystems and their biotic factors. This issue leads to eutrophication, the process by which algae blooms spawn and die, producing dead zones where marine life suffocates. When ingested in higher quantities (10 mg/L or above), nitrates can become toxic, causing birth defects and carcinogenic malignancies. Conventional methods to combat these phenomena ...more »

met: Metagenetic Enrichment Toolkit for Conservation

Background: Scientists, conservationists, and medical professionals use metabarcoding to locate species of microbes in environments, such as ponds and streams. Metabarcoding is the process of finding DNA in a sample and sequencing it. We sequence particular regions in that DNA that all life has in common. These regions have to be conserved across all life, but variable enough from species to species to be able to distinguish ...more »
