Conference video: Metabarcoding primer development

We have presented our latest research in DNA metabarcoding and primer development at the annual meetingĀ for freshwater science in Sacramento. A YouTube video is available below, with a PrePrint also being available here.

We are currently focusing on development and optimisation of DNA metabarcoding primers. As part of this process we have developed the R package “PrimerMiner” (GitHub) which can be used to obtain and process sequence data from BOLD and NCBI databases.
