Who is the new ally for a threatened species, extinct in its southern range? Dr Kerensa McElroy is explaining to us the value of new DNA technologies for species conservation. In a new crowdfunded collaboration with the Hawkesbury Institute, Kerensa is using genomics to understand how to protect the black-throated finch and resurrect its population in New South Wales, Australia.

Presented by Dr Alexie Papanicolaou of the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (Western Sydney University, Australia), Science in a Cup is a short interview-style podcast where a scientist explains one word related to science. Sometimes it is a jargon but more often this is a word we use every day but scientists may have a different meaning.
