Environmental DNA Case Study in Geneva
Scientists studying environmental DNA often analyze trace amounts of DNA per species in a given sample, without knowing the types or abundance of species represented. With next-generation sequencing (NGS), you can profile thousands of species simultaneously from a single sample. NGS also offers the sensitivity needed to detect eDNA present at low levels in the environment.
In contrast, physical surveys of natural environments require manual data collection and can be disruptive. Traditional DNA methods, such as bacterial cloning and Sanger sequencing, provide only a limited snapshot of a given sample. These approaches can be time-consuming and costly, and are not effective for processing large or complex samples.
We planned and undertook a complex film shoot in Geneva, Switzerland. Combining interviews with in-the-field scientific experiments. We shot to two cine cameras and a drone to provide a range of shots and perspectives.
Following the shoot a rough edit was compiled with a transcript for legal review and then following that we were able to complete a full grading and edit process
