Summary

In the Greenresilient project, we investigate soil health by characterising nematode communities. However, the traditional way of identifying nematodes using a microscope is very time-consuming. Specialists need 1 day to analyse 2 soil samples, and still only a part of all the nematodes are identified. That is why we started using the advanced DNA-sequencing method, called DNA-metabarcoding. In this video, we will explain how that works.
