Division for molecular diagnostics for aquaculture (DMA) of the laboratory for molecular studies of marine environments (LEMAM)

The DMA/LEMAM aim to promote knowledge and technology transfer between the scientific community and stakeholders in the fisheries and aquaculture sector, with support of CESAM, Central Laboratory Analyses (LCA) and AquaSafe project (funded by the Operational Programme for Fisheries and co-funded by the European Fisheries Fund). Our service uses novel molecular techniques to diagnose and anticipate disease outbreaks in aquaculture. To this end, molecular biology instruments and software are used that enable the accurate detection of microbial pathogens and genetic markers for resistance and virulence.
