In this second episode of the NatureMetrics webinar series, we show how DNA metabarcoding can unlock the big data potential of organisms that are small in size but rich in diversity and highly responsive to environmental conditions.

Using biological communities from soils, marine sediments and insect traps, we explore how the big data from these small things can be used to guide decision-making in real-world monitoring contexts, including:

-Environmental Impact Assessment
-Ecosystem health monitoring
-Tracking habitat restoration
-Creating a new generation of biodiversity metrics

The potential is huge, and we look forward to a lively discussion with you about how this can be applied.

In this webinar, we’ll briefly recap the basics of DNA metabarcoding and then show you a range of big data case studies spanning a range of different environments and groups of organisms. To finish, we’ll open the discussion and Q&A about how this can apply to your industries.

Reserve your seat for episode two today and join the discussion. https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_3z9srt6PRECyNCyKmYccvg
