Genetic monitoring of surface waters: new video
In the Interreg project SYNAQUA project partners from Switzerland and France seek to establish genetic methods for the biomonitoring of surface waters. This innovative approach relies on the taxonomic determination of bioindicator organisms based not on their morphology, but directly on their DNA. The project focusses on two groups of organisms, diatoms and oligochaetes.
