Detection of pathogens
Detection and quantification from environmental samples (e.g. wastewater, bathing water, surface water) or their vectors (e.g. ticks, mosquitoes)
Identification of organisms from whole individuals, parts (e.g. legs), larvae, eggs, etc.
Biodiversity inventories using barcoding and metabarcoding approaches on any type of matrix (e.g. water, soil)
Comparison of individuals of the same species for conservation or management purposes (e.g. inbreeding)
