Project description

Marine biodiversity is lost at a record rate. It is therefore essential to understand the diversity of invertebrates based on their morphology and genetic characteristics. The Marine Biology research group is renowned in the research of invertebrates in the seabed and their role in the functioning of marine ecosystems. The renewal of microscopic and molecular instruments is necessary to ensure this high-quality research.
