Editor's choice: DNA leaves a trace

An article by GeoGenetics' researchers was picked as ‘Editor's choice' in the journal Science in January.

The referred article featured in Molecular Ecology in December 2011. The content was a new environmental monitoring method developed by GeoGenetics' scientists. The method uses sequencing of DNA in small amounts of water from lakes and rivers to reveal which organisms live in the area.

The same article has also been selected and evaluated by the Faculty of 1000. It placed the work in their library in the top 2% of published articles in biology and medicine.
