A comparison of European eel Anguilla anguilla eDNA concentrations to fyke net catches in five Irish lakes. (2020)
Journal Article
Weldon, L., O'Leary, C., Steer, M., Newton, L., Macdonald, H., & Sargeant, S. (2020). A comparison of European eel Anguilla anguilla eDNA concentrations to fyke net catches in five Irish lakes. Environmental DNA, 2(4), 587-600. https://doi.org/10.1002/edn3.91

The European eel, Anguilla anguilla, is classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. To protect what remains of the European eel population, accurate monitoring methods for this species are important. Environmental DNA (eDNA) techniques are gaini...

Art-science collaboration in an EPSRC/BBSRC-funded synthetic biology UK research centre (2020)
Journal Article
Reinsborough, M. (2020). Art-science collaboration in an EPSRC/BBSRC-funded synthetic biology UK research centre. NanoEthics, 14(1), 93-111. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11569-020-00367-3

Here I examine the potential for art-science collaborations to be the basis for deliberative discussions on research agendas and direction. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has become a science policy goal in synthetic biology and several ot...
