Repairing nature with DNA technology

The monumental global task to restore degraded ecosystems will need to include sophisticated technologies such as environmental DNA monitoring to understand and support the recovery of complex biospheres, international researchers say. Genomics provides some important ‘weapons’ in the fight to repair ecosystems — from authenticating seed sources to improving the detection of invasive weeds or animals, says one of the researchers.The monumental global task to restore degraded ecosystems will need to include sophisticated technologies such as environmental DNA monitoring to understand and support the recovery of complex biospheres, international researchers say.
