Sequencing Biodiversity: The feasibility of assessing biodiversity by sequencing (KB-24-002-017, KB-14-004-030, KB-14-003-016)

Project: EZproject

Project Details



Developments in DNA sequencing technology wil cause a revolution in various fields, from personalized medicine to understanding biodiversity. For KB24 it is important that it will enable visualising species diversity by means of DNA sequencing, also for organism that are difficult to detect, and that this methodology can, in principle, be automated. New methods of species identification will also enable new ways of communicating biodiversity research to the public, including ways to detect invasive plant at border controls, and tools to identify illegally traded protected species and to distinguish them from cultivated material.
