Abstract/ Summary

Maine-eDNA is a 5-year research, education and outreach program that seeks to transform our understanding and sustainability of Maine’s coastal ecosystems via environmental DNA (eDNA) innovations that unlock new scales of inference and new scales of collaboration.

Suddenly, after thousands of years, it’s like we have new nets: With cutting-edge Environmental DNA methods the Maine-eDNA program aims to revolutionize monitoring and ecological understanding of our coastal ecosystems.

Collecting eDNA samples will be as simple as filling a bottle with water — no nets needed.
