Title: The TREC Expedition
The TREC (TRaversing European Coastlines) Expedition is
TRaversing European Coastlines (TREC) is an international, highly collaborative scientific expedition that addresses important environmental and societal challenges such as climate change, pollution, spread of antibiotic resistance, and the loss of biodiversity. The expedition explores the interactions between the two major ecosystems on our planet, ocean and land. TREC will bring molecular sciences to environmental research in a Pan European project to obtain a mechanistic understanding of organismal responses to natural and anthropogenic environmental factors. The scientific endeavour will be accompanied with mobile service, training and outreach activities.
This seminar will also include the participation of CIIMAR researcher Amaranta Kahn, who will be developing parts of her project at the EMBL´s Advanced Mobile Lab facilities.
