Cryobanking of Marine Organisms (JRA2)

 

Lead Partner: Estefania Paredes - University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) & John Day - Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) 

Joint Research Activity 2 (JRA2) will address a constraint in the exploitation of marine genetic and biological resources, namely the current paucity of capability for preserving these resources ex situ with guaranteed genetic, phenotypic and functional stability. The JRA will develop robust, reproducible cryopreservation methodologies for various life-stages of a range of marine macro-organisms and currently cryo-recalcitrant microorganisms. The results will improve and expand the availability of biological resources for Transnational Access (TA) at significantly reduced costs.
