Who wouldn’t wish to be able to look into the past? New molecular methods make this possible now – especially when it comes to the history of ecosystems. How exactly does it work? Prof. Dr. Laura Epp will explain it in her talk “Environmental DNA from the past: molecular palaeoecology as a tool for studying past and future ecosystems”. Laura Epp is researcher and lecturer at the Limnological Institute of the University of Konstanz. She is also involved in the PHYTOARK research network, together with TBG researchers. The lecture will take place online on Tuesday, June 8, at 7:15 p.m. via livestream at www.senckenberg.de/live. The event is part of the Senckenberg lecture series “Bauplan der Natur – Wie Genomik unseren Blick auf die biologische Vielfalt revolutioniert” (in German).
