For the first time in history, a successful experiment to obtain human DNA from the air

London: Scientists at Queen Mary University have successfully experimented with extracting DNA from humans and animals. In this careful process, since DNA is extracted from the surrounding air and atmosphere, it is called environmental DNA or EDNA for short.

Dr. Elizabeth Claire, a molecular ecologist at the university, said that in this way we can derive DNA from water, soil and other places, which has many uses. According to him, DNA testing in any pond or river section can determine the types of fish present there.

Although DNA of different species has been extracted from soil and water before, EDNA was not tested for air. In this regard, Queen Mary University’s research is the first of its kind in the world.
