Official project launch of DNAquaIMG!

DNAquaIMG – Innovative transnational aquatic biodiversity monitoring using high-throughput DNA tools and automated image recognition – is one of 33 successful biodiversa+ projects from the BiodivMon call 2022: Improved transnational monitoring and ecosystem change for science and society.

DNAquaIMG will develop and test an efficient and effective approach to monitor freshwater invertebrates and diatoms with novel DNA- and automated image-based biodiversity assessment methods. Together with stakeholders involved in environmental monitoring, the consortium will develop a roadmap for European freshwater biodiversity monitoring using these methods within the existing and well-established context of the European Water Framework Directive.

The DNAquaIMG team consists of nearly 50 members from 14 research institutions in 11 European countries.
