About This Project

The aim of this research is to find and test gene regions in the genome of freshwater green algae which can aid the identification of species in this taxon. These so-called molecular barcodes will be amplified by PCR and compared by sequence analysis, and their successful application will aid greatly in determining the current taxonomy of green algae, as well as conducting environmental surveys, identifying new species, or selecting strains for potential human use and applications.
