Evening Talk Series: UW Olympic Natural Resources Center
Introduction to Environmental DNA with Dr. Austin Thomas
Please join us as we re-engage and develop our online Evening Talk’s new approach to community engagement. We will begin this effort with a continuation of our first 2020 Wild Steelhead Review evening event featuring eDNA research. This evening talk will share information on using this process including current research and equipment. Dr. Austen Thomas, Senior Research Scientist, will give us an introduction and his use on conducting e-DNA research. There are specific Olympic Peninsula eDNA research efforts currently proceeding. We hope to bring additional natural resource professionals working on the Olympic Peninsula conducting eDNA research to you through future online Evening Talks. Dr. Thomas will share his information for understanding the use of eDNA to detect the presence of specific populations of fish and other aquatic species in our local rivers and estuaries.
