AllGenetics takes part in DNA metabarcoding workshop


The workshop is being held at the University of Manchester.

AllGenetics technical manager Mr. Antón Vizcaíno is attending the Metabarcoding of Soil Fauna Workshop which is being held today at the University of Manchester. The meeting is a side event of the 3rd Annual Meeting of the EcoFinders (Ecological Function and Biodiversity Indicators in European Soils) project.

The workshop is organised by Dr. Arjen de Groot (Alterra - Wageningen UR) and Dr. Rüdiger Schmelz (ECT Oekotoxikologie GmbH). The aim is to bring together international researchers interested in applying DNA metabarcoding to the study of soil animals. Key note speakers are Prof. Alfried Vogler, Dr. Christopher Quince, and Dr. Si Creer.

AllGenetics is currently applying the DNA metabarcoding technology in biodiversity and food safety projects. You can learn more about DNA metabarcoding by clicking here.
