Chasing the microbial diversity of Cambridge's freshwater
The Microbiome of the Cam
Punting & Sequencing (PuntSeq) started off as a small project of Cambridge PhD students
using a portable real-time DNA analyzer
to discover bacteria in the local river Cam.
Monitoring water quality
Our aim is to develop a generally applicable approach to profile microorganisms in any aquatic environment. Easy, at low-cost.
In light of continuously decreasing freshwater qualities worldwide, monitoring workflows are becoming crucial.
