Naiara Rodriguez-Ezpeleta, expert in Marine Ecosystem Functioning and Molecular Ecology and Biotechnology, has been selected along with 15 other people to be part of the Advisory Board of the citizen science project “Environmental DNA Expeditions“, a joint initiative of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO and the World Heritage Centre. Environmental DNA Expeditions: citizen science […]
Environmental DNA is the DNA collected from the environment, that is, from environmental samples, such as for example seawater. Seawater samples contain small organisms such as bacteria and phytoplankton, but also traces of larger organisms, in form of cells, tissues, or scales released by fish. By filtering several litres of seawater, these traces can be […]
Four AZTI women researchers are among the top 5,000 women working in Spanish institutions. This is according to the study carried out by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in its first ranking of the 5,000 Spanish and foreign women scientists doing research in Spanish organisations. This ranking has been carried out according to the […]
The technology centre has coordinated this research that enables the development of a pioneering tool to discover the origin of the specimens of this species for an improved management and sustainability. The results of the study, led by AZTI researchers, Naiara Rodríguez Ezpeleta and Haritz Arrizabalaga, have been published in the prestigious scientific journal, Frontiers […]
The AZTI technological centre has studied the potential of environmental DNA sequencing to monitor marine resources more economically and accurately than with commonly used methodologies. Research has focused on the analysis of ocean water samples and has found that environmental DNA sequencing can, more accurately than traditional methodologies, determine the abundance, diversity and spatial distribution […]
A study by the AZTI technology centre shows for the first time that the two species of anglerfish hybridise and can reproduce viably. The research also questions the reliability of the species assignment approach used until now. The results, obtained in the framework of the Joint Research Centre funded GECKA project, have been published in […]
Fri, Jun 26, 2020 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM CEST According to the Common Fisheries Policy, fisheries management must be based on the best available scientific advice. This is achieved through the collection of harmonised, reliable and accurate biological and fishery-dependent and -independent data. Yet, often the accuracy of the data collected is compromised by technological […]
