DNAQUA International Conference

9-11th March 2021 –  100% Online

First international conference on the use of DNA for water biomonitoring

Pressures on aquatic ecosystems are increasing due to population growth and climate change. National and international legal frameworks have put the focus on this problem. Therefore, there is a need to systematically assess and monitor the quality of aquatic ecosystems.

With more than 400 participants from 49 countries, DNAqua-Net COST action explores since 2017 the potential of novel DNA-based techniques and provides good practice solutions for an application in such biomonitoring programme.

This first DNAQUA International Conference will give the opportunity to scientists and stakeholders to get in touch on the latest outputs from DNAqua-Net and other international research on DNA-based monitoring. While methods are leaving the labs where they have been developed, and being tested in real life, it is now time to deepen the dialogue between academia, industry and stakeholders from countries all around the world to find implementation and standardisation solutions for these new methods.

Venue : 100% online, free attendance

Dates : 9th to 11th March 2021

Sessions : DNA Barcode References – Biotic Indices & Metrics – Field & Lab Protocols – Data Analysis & Storage – Implementation Strategy & Legal Issues
