NatureMetrics scientists publish paper on eDNA validation scale

By |3rd August 2021|

NatureMetrics team members Dr Kat Bruce and Dr Lynsey Harper are among the authors of a newly-published research paper titled ‘A validation scale to determine the readiness of environmental DNA assays for routine species monitoring’. A key message of the paper is that assays at intermediate validation levels may still be highly effective and can be informative for applied monitoring. Crucially, the paper provides guidance on how to interpret positive and negative results from assays at each stage of the scale.
