Initial request form for submitting environmental DNA (eDNA) data
Please fill out this form to begin the process of submitting your eDNA data for display on the
USGS NAS database (https://nas.er.usgs.gov). Once we receive
and approve this request, you will be emailed a link to access to the full application form online.
At this time, the NAS database is only able to accept eDNA data:
- identifying nonindigenous/ invasive aquatic species outside of their native or historic range;
- from water or aquatic sediment sampling within the United States or its territories;
- and produced using probe-based quantitative PCR or digital PCR data
Additionally, it is not a requirement to have positive detections to submit your data, but proper
controls are paramount (see Guidance Document). Please fill in all entries then click the
Send Request button below. Further details and descriptions about your submission,
or questions you have for the NAS team, can be included within the Comments entry area.
Do you have multiple target species data to submit? If so, please fill out a request
for each species independently. If you have questions, please email a NAS staff
member for assistance.
Which aquatic invasive taxa/species are you reporting on?
