Assistant Professor Dianne Gleeson, ‘Wildlife detection using environmental DNA’
Associate Professor Dianne Gleeson's research interests are in the application of DNA technologies for biodiversity conservation outcomes. Specifically this has been applied to population genetics of threatened species (invertebrates & vertebrates) and in the developing field of wildlife forensics. She is interested in application of next generation sequencing technologies to applications within ecology such as species detection from trace DNA samples and diet analysis of gut/scat contents.
