Our paper ‘Current applications and future promise of genetic/genomic data for conservation in an Aotearoa New Zealand context’ is now available as an open-access peer-reviewed report in @docgovtnz’s Science for Conservation series:… 🧵1/7
To support conservation practitioners in identifying appropriate tools to inform conservation management, we review opportunities, challenges and costs associated with available & emerging tools, incl #pedigrees, #microsatellites, #genomes, #eDNA, #aDNA, #pangenomes & more! 2/7
This is a dynamic field, & costs (incl 💰🕒🥼🖥️) are rapidly changing. With >300 references, we hope this paper will be a useful resource for #conservation researchers & practitioners keen to apply the #conservation toolbox, esp. in an Aotearoa context. 3/7 A diagram describing conser...

Rivers carry the living impressions of civilisations that have settled on their banks since the dawn of time, are home for unique flora and fauna. How can we better understand and protect them? #Vigilife has launched the #30sentinelrivers program with #eDNA. A thread 1/n ImageImage
By building an international network of partners and sharing #eDNA know-how, #Vigilife is establishing long term #monitoring programs, which will become a precious tool for safeguarding freshwater biodiversity.

I learned so much on my first 5-week field season to Indonesia 🇮🇩 - what a great way to end my first year as a PhD student! Here's a mega-#thread of what I (+ the field team) was up to (w/ lots of pictures):
🧬 @ErinBorbee and I started off by getting our research permits sorted + teaching a workshop on amplicon sequencing and environmental DNA at @ipb_fpik.
⛵️ Then, the field team was off to Misool, one of four main islands in Raja Ampat ("the Four Kings"). This archipelago system likely contains the highest marine biodiversity in the world, right in the heart of the Coral Triangle. We stayed on a liveaboard with an excellent crew!
