Marine models

The development of expertise and research in biology is based on the provision of organisms grown ex situ under controlled conditions. Research and development activities EMBRC-France aim to improve cultivation techniques of various marine organisms and thus the quality of the resource for the benefit of the scientific community.

Studies conducted under EMBRC-France focus on the optimization of culture conditions, the seasonal adjustment of the breeding, cryopreservation, but also the methods of transporting a wide variety of organisms.

Among all the studied model organisms include sea urchin (Paracentrotus), cuttlefish (Sepia), ascidians (Ciona, Phallusia, Botryllus), Medusa (Clytia), amphioxus (Branchiostoma), dogfish (Scyliorhinus ) and variety of microorganisms (microalgae, bacteria).
