Apresentação da tese de doutoramento de Patrícia Diogo
Esta sexta-feira, dia 18 de outubro, às 10:00H, a nossa doutoranda Patrícia Diogo do grupo de investigação Bioskel irá apresentar e defender a sua tese sobre Cryopreservation of zebrafish germ cells: technological improvements and methodological standardization for gene banking and management.
Os supervisores serão Paulo Gavaia (CCMAR) e Elsa Cabrita (CCMAR) e terá lugar no Anfiteatro Verde, Edifício 8.
Breve resumo da tese de Patrícia: Due to the increasing number of zebrafish mutant and transgenic lines there is a high demand for assisted reproductive techniques to support facility management. Efficient zebrafish sperm cryopreservation is a pressing necessity to manage and preserve these valuable genetic resources. However, in zebrafish, these methodologies lack standardization resulting in high variability in post-thaw sperm quality and in vitro fertilization success. The objective of this thesis was to establish guidelines to support the management and storage improvement of zebrafish genetic resources.
