Can you analyze algae eDNA?

We have made some initial forays into analysing algal eDNA, but the group is such a diverse and informally named group that a single assay for so many different evolutionary lineages makes it difficult. Nevertheless we have managed to amplify and sequence algal eDNA, but this pipeline is still in its infancy and the reference databases very incomplete, so we would regard this as being during the R&D phase.
