News Center Maine reports on UMaine using eDNA to track rainbow smelt

News Center Maine featured research from the University of Maine that tracks down sea run rainbow smelt using environmental DNA, or eDNA. “It runs right up against forensics, it’s just, we move outside of crime scenes and into the wild. The nice things about environmental DNA is it only requires somebody to collect a water sample,” said Michael Kinnison, professor of evolutionary applications at the University of Maine.
