eDNA Virtual Hub

Environmental DNA, or eDNA, refers to the DNA that is shed or excreted from biological organisms, for example as skin, hair, faeces or urine. This powerful new technology is transforming how biological diversity is measured.

A tranche 1 BioHeritage research team led out of the University of Auckland have developed Aotearoas first national biodiversity database - or virtual hub - where researchers will be able to share and integrate eDNA data.
