Assessing quality of flowing waters with DNA analyses

Organisms in streams and rivers shed light on quality of waters

10-Jul-2015

The quality of waters can be assessed using of the organisms occurring therein. This approach often results in errors, because many species look alike. Therefore, new methods focus on DNA analyses instead. Biologists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have optimised the process so that they are ...
