Across alpine lakes and rivers
I'm Nika from Slovenia and I'm the IVY volunteer at National institut of Biology (NIB). I've been here for 4 months now and i can tell that was one great decision. I am working on project «Innovative Ecological Assesment and Water Management Strategy for the Protection of Ecosystem Services in Alpine Lakes and Rivers» (Eco-AlpsWater). The aim of the project is to improve the traditional monitoring approaches by using advanced DNA sequencing techniques such as metabarcoding.
