Project: Artemia as a tool and model organism for an efficient and sustainable Chilean aquaculture in a global world

01-FEB-04 – 31-JAN-07

This project aims at the development of molecular characterization and authentication tools, using Chilean Artemia as model organism. Improved techniques will result in better insight into the characteristics of the Artemia populations, and in its more efficient use in aquaculture and saltworks management. Secondly, the methodology will be adapted to study the genetic resources of species relevant for Chilean aquaculture.
