DNA metabarcoding is a recent genomic technique with promising applications in biodiversity assessment and biomonitoring. The goal of Filipa Martins’ project is to develop and evaluate a metabarcoding protocol, from macroinvertebrate sampling and genetic identification to a river classification method using multimetric indices that meets the criteria of the EU Water Framework Directive.
