Capture enrichment of aquatic environmental DNA: A first proof of concept

Wilcox, Taylor; Zarn, Katherine E.; Piggott, Maxine; Young, Michael K.; McKelvey, Kevin S.; Schwartz, Michael K.

Description

Environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling—the detection of genetic material in the environment to infer species presence—has rapidly grown as a tool for sampling aquatic animal communities. A potentially powerful feature of environmental sampling is that all taxa within the habitat shed DNA and so may be detectable, creating opportunity for whole‐community assessments. However, animal DNA in the environment tends to be comparatively rare, making it necessary to enrich for genetic targets from focal...[Show more]
