DNA barcoding and meta barcoding of Arctic biodiversity: current insights and future prospects

Date/time: December 4, 10:30-12:00

Room: Gofoten

Session organizers: Torbjørn Ekrem, NTNU University Museum and Elisabeth Stur, NTNU University Museum

Species identification using standardized DNA fragments (DNA barcoding) and other markers has revolutionised our ability to investigate, delineate, compare and monitor species and their communities. This is also true for the Arctic where DNA barcoding and metabarcoding have provided considerable insights in ecosystem composition and change in time and space. This session aims to provide details on the current use of standardised molecular identification tools on Arctic biodiversity and discuss future prospects in relationship to environmental change, ecosystem services and society.  

Session theme: Arctic change, resilience and adaption
