Floating DNA reveals urban shorelines support more animal life

(University of Washington) Researchers are now able to capture the cells of animals, sequence their DNA and identify which species were present at a point in time. A new University of Washington study is the first to use these genetic markers to understand the impact urbanization has on the environment -- specifically, whether animal diversity flourishes or suffers.
