Environmental DNA Emerging in the Ocean Science Community

There is a new buzzword in the ocean science/sensing community. The word is eDNA, an abbreviation for environmental DNA. This refers to DNA that can be extracted from environmental samples without first isolating any target organisms. In the maritime community such samples are taken from water.  All

MBARI researchers head out into Monterey Bay to deploy a long-range autonomous underwater vehicle

MBARI Works at Unlocking Ocean Biology

Greater understanding of what goes on in the ocean is starting to become a reality – thanks to growing use of unmanned surface and underwater vehicles and developments in biological sensing.  Elaine Maslin takes a look at what a team at MBARI has been doing.Gathering biological data from the oceans
