Scientists are using advanced DNA sequencing technologies to uncover the secrets of our world. By performing high throughput sequencing on environmental DNA (eDNA) isolated from the soil, ice, and water, researchers can track ancient and modern plants, animals, and microbes in precise locations. In this webinar, Eske Willerslev and Simon Creer will share what they have learned from eDNA sequencing, including insights into the ancient world and current global biodiversity.

Topics to be covered

  • Discoveries about human history made by sequencing ancient DNA
  • How environmental DNA (eDNA) sequencing can teach us about global biodiversity
