Procedures for Reproductive risk Evaluation based on Diagnostic and Innovative Cellular Tools (PREDICT) - AE1118

Description
Summary Objectives:-
Using marine mussel eggs, develop simple biomarkers which determine the effects of contaminants on reproductive success.

Key Customer Purpose:-
Through the use of biomarker tests which detect effects at a critical point in the life cycle, help establish the link between reduced health status in individuals and harmful effects on populations.
