Genetic screening of zooplankton

Genetic screening of bivalve and crustacean larvae in plankton samples from around the Irish coast

This project aims at developing state-of-the-art molecular tools for the rapid and cost-effective screening of plankton samples for the presence of bivalve and crustacean species of commercial value.

This project is in collaboration with BIM and is funded by the European Maritime Fisheries Fund.
