Analysis of populations of animals can be problematic, especially when individuals of different species share similar visual characteristics. Dr. Melinda Baerwald has developed a field-friendly way to identify individual species with great sensitivity and specificity, without a complicated DNA prep or temperature cycling equipment. The application of the SHERLOCK method was used to monitor populations of endangered species in Northern California. She describes the application of the assay and its application.
