NORA Outreach Group: Oysters as a model system for high school genetics classes

The third NORA Outreach group meeting of this year will take place online on Tuesday June 22th at 10 am CET/ 9 am GMT.

In this meeting, Homère Alves Monteiro from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will present material developed as a practical lesson for high school students in genetics. The example focusses on rebuilding a depleted wild flat oyster population and how genetics can assess the importance of retaining global and local biodiversity and illustrates the importance of understanding the biology and the genetic makeup of the flat oyster when deciding how to act on an endangered wild population.
