Health Desk-- 1 June, 2018: DNA sampling is to be used to discover previously unrecorded organisms in Loch Ness, according to a BBC report.

Prof Neil Gemmell, a New Zealand scientist leading the project, said he did not believe in Nessie, but was confident of finding genetic codes for other creatures.

He said a “biological explanation” might be found to explain some of the stories about the Loch Ness Monster. The team will collect tiny fragments of skin and scales for two weeks in June.

Prof Gemmell, from the University of Otago in Dunedin, said: “I don’t believe in the idea of a monster, but I’m open to the idea that there are things yet to be discovered and not fully understood.
