Development of eDNA sampling detection of animal disease from on-farm water sources

Project: Research

Project Details


This project will assess on-farm sampling for detecting animal disease using modern molecular methods such as environmental DNA (eDNA). eDNA refers to traces of DNA that are shed from live organisms into the environment. When eDNA is tested it can indicate which organism the DNA came from and allow early detection of pests and diseases. The project will focus on developing eDNA sampling for on-farm water sources that can be performed by industry and stakeholders to support biosecurity surveillance in northern Australia.
