  这是一个由来已久的谜团。尼斯湖浑浊的湖水下究竟隐藏着什么?尼斯湖水怪的出现可以追溯到几百年前,但至今仍无确切的解释。由新西兰奥塔哥大学牵头的一个科学家团队 [ti:小e英语] [ar:小e英语这是一个由来已久的谜团。 [00:02.62]Just what exactly lies beneath the murky waters of Loch Ness? 尼斯湖浑浊的湖水下究竟隐藏着什么? [00:06.67]The sightings of Nessie stretch back hundreds of years - but as yet, no definitive explanation has been found. 尼斯湖水怪的出现可以追溯到几百年前,但至今仍无确切的解释。 [00:16.78]A team of scientists, led by New Zealands Otago University, has been testing water samples and collecting environmental DNA from all forms of life in the loch, including plants, insects, fish and mammals. 由新西兰奥塔哥大学牵头的一个科学家团队采集分析了尼斯湖水样,并收集了湖中生物的脱氧核糖核酸(DNA),包括植物、昆虫、鱼类和哺乳动物。 [00:29.75]You basically take a litre or two of water and you filter it out, and in the stuff thats filtered out will be DNA. “你提取一到两升水,然后过滤,过滤掉的东西里会有环境 DNA。 [00:37.45]And using that DNA, you can then sequence it. 用这些 DNA,可进行基因排序。 [00:40.92]And on the basis of the sequence, identify the types of organisms that are present in the water. 根据序列,识别出水中存在的生物体类型。” [00:46.39]The worlds media gathered at the loch side to hear exactly what they found. 全世界的媒体都聚集在湖边,想听听这项研究到底发现了什么。 [00:51.69]This idea of a giant, extinct reptile... Well, we didnt find any reptilian DNA, so we dont think that seems very plausible based on the samples and the analysis that weve undertaken. “我们没有发现任何爬行动物的 DNA,我们认为这似乎不太可信,这是根据我们所做的样本分析得出的结果。 [01:00.13]And we also went looking for another idea, which is a giant eel. 我们也试图寻找一条巨型鳗鱼。 [01:04.90]Well, we dont know if the eels are giant or not but we certainly found an awful lot of eel DNA. 我们不知道湖中的鳗鱼是否巨大,但我们确实发现了大量鳗鱼 DNA。 [01:09.04]I guess, much more than I expected. 比我想象的要多。” [01:10.58]But one long-time Nessie hunter is unconvinced by todays news. 但是这位长期研究尼斯湖水怪的男士并不认可这项研究的新发现。 [01:15.37]Eels in Loch Ness? Personally, I think a 12-year-old boy could tell you that. “尼斯湖里有鳗鱼?在我看来,一个 12 岁的男孩都知道这个。 [01:21.22]There could be some massive eels in there - that could be the explanation. 尼斯湖里可能有一些巨大的鳗鱼,这可能是一种解释。 [01:24.71]But to say we have found evidence of eels is like saying weve found evidence of fish in a Scottish loch. 但是说 ‘我们发现了鳗鱼存在的证据’ 就像说 ‘我们在苏格兰的湖泊中发现了鱼类存在的证据’。 [01:31.34]Well done! 这研究做得真好!” [01:32.91]The sense of mystery here at the loch, though, remains. 尽管如此,尼斯湖的神秘感依然存在。 [01:37.33]More than 20% of the DNA found was unidentified - meaning the search for Nessie goes on. 此次研究发现的生物 DNA 中超过 20% 是未知的,这意味着对尼斯湖水怪的搜寻仍将继续。科学家团队分析尼斯湖水样DNA 试图解开水怪谜团
