Chironomid DNA metabarcoding in Bti-treated wetlands
In this post, Kathrin Theissinger talks about their recently published paper “Using DNA metabarcoding for assessing chironomid diversity and community change in mosquito controlled temporary wetlands”.
I spy with my little eye
In this post, Alexander Feckler talks about his recently published paper “Quantitative real-time PCR as a promising tool for the detection and quantification of leaf-associated fungal species – A proof-of-concept using Alatospora pulchella”.
Landau goes Metabarcoding
In this post Anna Kästel and Kathrin Theissinger inform you what the new year brings: a new method for DNA based analyzing of environmental samples (metabarcoding), cooperations with the University of Duisburg- Essen and the University of Eastern Finland and hopefully exciting results about the sensitivity of chironomids to Bti!
