Advances in Next-Generation sequencing have made it possible for us to sequence DNA in the field, with protocol bringing prices per barcode down to 10 cents! With these advances and more citizen scientists practicing biology, we have a unique opportunity to collect an incredible amount of sensitive environmental data. William has spent time sequencing mushroom DNA in the field, learn what it’s like to collect data from the environment in the environment real-time!
