About this site

Developed with funding from the Department of Defense Legacy Resource Management Program, this website is intended to transfer eDNA technology to DoD natural resource managers. The site’s resources will also be useful for non-DoD biologists and managers, researchers, and the interested public to learn more about eDNA methods and applications.

The site will be updated as new resources become available or existing protocols are revised. Check back often to see what’s new. We welcome contact from researchers, practitioners, and laboratories who would like to add content to the eDNA toolkit, or from site users with suggestions for specific types of resources they’d like to see.

Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the DOD Legacy Resource Management Program.

How to use this site

The eDNA toolbox holds a variety of resources for DoD managers and other practitioners to learn about and implement eDNA methods. Three general types of resources are hosted on this site: introductory information about eDNA methods, tools for implementing eDNA approaches for natural resource management, and examples of eDNA applications on DoD installations and beyond.
