DNA reference library a game-changer for environmental monitoring

DNA reference library a game-changer for environmental monitoring

We are building a National Biodiversity DNA Library to deliver a complete collection of DNA reference sequences for all known Australian animal and plant species. Minderoo Foundation is partnering with CSIRO to fund the first part of this DNA reference library, focusing on all species of Australian marine vertebrates, including fishes, whales, dolphins, seals, turtles, sea snakes and inshore sea and aquatic birds.
