    Examples of projects that students can currently join:

    Figuring out to what extent mussel genotype affect performance. Starting in April 2022 a project will start on trying to unravel nature versus nurture. You will work with mussels raised in the same environment but coming from a distinct genetic background. We are interested in seeing whether there are inherited differences in performance such as clearance rate, etc.
