I am interested in finding out more about using eDNA for a variety of aquatic invasive plants and animals.  Does anyone have information about this?  Are there existing labs where we could send water samples for analysis?

Hi Noah, great question!  There are currently several labs in the Michigan & N. Indiana area that use eDNA in invasive species detection.  Which species specifically were you looking for information about; some lab are currently working with Asian Carp (Notre Dame in the Lodge lab) and some are working with Zebra Mussels, Quagga Mussels & gobies and Spiny water flea (Syed Hashsham's environmental engineering lab at Michigan State).  I am sure there are others, but those are the only ones that come to mind right now and that might be a start for you.
