Disseminate and teach the environmental DNA method



ARGALY's podcast!

Podcast ARGALY Marielle.jpeg

This month, Marielle took the microphone to shine a light on our activities and values in a new episode of the Rouge & Blanc Podcast, dedicated to biodiversity preservation in Savoie Mont-Blanc. A great opportunity to know more about our lab day-to-day life and to learn how to track the alpine wolves thanks to their DNA...

Soil workshop

Fresque sol 2.jfif

Questioning ourselves individually and collectively about soil services in our everyday life… Big challenge of the Soil Workshop, to which the team participated to get aware of the living world underneath our feet. Together with the Association pour une Agriculture Durable (APAD), we identified the threats weighing on soils and we considered more sustainable solutions to preserve this essential treasure.

ARGALY is 6 years old!

ARGALY's adventure started in 2017...

8 new employees, a lot of motivating projects that reflect our values (more than 70 in 2023!) and inspiring meetings have marked these few years.

Road to 2024!

ARGALY took part in the biggest exhibition for innovative environmental solutions in Lyon. Conferences, workshops and discussions between professionals: a great opportunity for us to spread the eDNA tool and speak about metabarcoding for biodiversity monitoring and preservation !

eDNA symposium

Aurélie BONIN went to Paris on the 28th of September after being invited to a symposium organised by the Académie d'Agriculture de France. Untitled "Environmental DNA and RNA : markers of life in ecosystems", she introduced some examples of eDNA applications in the field of agriculture.

eDNA study in Méditerranée

We are glad to share a project conducted by one of our clients, the ECOSEAS Laboratory of Université Côte d’Azur, freshly published in 𝐸𝑛𝑣𝑖𝑟𝑜𝑛𝑚𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝐷𝑁𝐴, which aims at exploring the use of eDNA to monitore the fish communities in the Mediterranean sea, and particularly in the protected marine area of Cap Roux. An article to read without further delay!

Biodiversity buzzing


Spring is a crossroads season for fauna and flora: a lot of species go out from hibernation, while others buckle down to reproduction. Species are more active, which means that they leave more DNA traces in their environment. This season is thus particularly opportune for eDNA sampling to spot and inventory birds, reptiles, ungulates, fish or pollinating insects... So get set and go sample!

Field demonstration

Eva and Héloïse attended a seminar in Toulouse that aimed to present the technological developments serving the scientific monitoring of protected areas. The technical and ethical potentials of innovative methods for biodiversity assessment were discussed. We also had the chance to do a field demonstration about eDNA sampling protocols !
