Mobile laboratory of environmental genetics
Biodiversity is one of the most important natural resources, and its study is key to the understanding of humans’ impact on the environment. In recent decades, there has been an intensive development of methods for studying biodiversity. Increasingly, material collected in the field is identified not only on the basis of morphology but also through the sequencing of selected molecular markers. The development of next-generation sequencing techniques has also made it possible to introduce diversity analyzes based on sequencing of marker sequences directly from the water or soil samples taken in the field. Currently, molecular methods are becoming a standard in biodiversity research not only in research, but also more and more often in monitoring work. Due to the increasing use of molecular methods in environmental research, educating students in this field becomes of key importance. The aim of this project entitled The mobile laboratory of environmental genetics was to create a laboratory enabling students to acquire the practical skills on molecular methods used in environmental research.
