At ISME18, over 2000 scientists from all over the world were gathered. It was a week full of high-end and innovative talks, covering all different aspects of microbiology and a place to present our current research field on extra- and intracellular DNA during a poster session. Our aim was to raise awareness on the existence and hidden information in the different fractions of environmental DNA. Depending on the research question, discrimination of these fractions can improve the interpretation of results from biomonitoring campaigns, but also help to evaluate the activity within specific environments. Sequential DNA extraction will also be applied in various studies on anaerobic fungi within the HiPoAF project and plays a fundamental role in the Ph.D. thesis of Sophia Strobl.
