Our eDNA analysis pipeline is fast!

UCLA postdoc Dr. Emily Curd, who spearheaded the development of a new software pipeline and top quality DNA reference databases, has streamlined the pipeline to run fast. In just about two days, we've gone from 200 samples in raw fastq files to lists of species, abundance, and confidence level of the species assignment. We've processed close to 1000 samples on the pipeline, which will called Anacapa, and will soon be published and publicly available. Congratulations, Emily, Jesse, Gaurav, Bao-Chen, Zack, Rachel, and Bob!
