    Today, I became aware of some ongoing R&D in the field of environmental DNA sequencing and I was pretty impressed – So I share

    I have attended a presentation by a French company named SpyGen

    http://www.spygen.fr/en/references.php

    that is aiming at commercializing a test to determine the fishes species inhabiting a river/pond by “just” sequencing the DNA that can be obtained from the free water. The preliminary results they presented were pretty impressive. They are currently establishing a reference database for the European fishes. They are also working on several other animal groups: amphibian, bats…

    I feel that such a technology has the power to change the way populations of wild fishes can be surveyed and monitored. It is not unlikely that new species of fish can even be detected by this way

    A few open access papers and other documents on this topic can also be retrieved by googling “environmental DNA fish”
