Visitor from Finnland!

Last week Kristian Meissner (PhD) from the Finnish Environment Institute, SYKE,  visited us to discuss ongoing and future projects. Currently, we process finnish macrozoobenthos samples for metabarcoding. Using our state-of-the-art metabarcoding protocols we are working on a developing more reliable and cheaper water quality assessment routines than possible with morphology-based methods. We would like to thank Kristian for his visit and are looking forward to future cooperations.
