Jellyfish project

In recent days we are starting our jellyfish metabolism studies. In this way, we have the collaboration with the Loro Parque Foundation that already have cultures of several jellyfish species, and they are very interested in collaborating with us in research projects related to these organisms.

For more info, please visit the web of the Loro Parque Foundation here.
