Thursday, March 19, 2020. 12:00PM. Webinar: Phenotypic and transcriptomic response of farmed Atlantic surfclams to repeated heat stress. Michael Acquafredda, OAR. Sponsored by NOAA Central Library and the 2020 Knauss Fellowship. More information here.
The Atlantic surfclam (Spisula solidissima) is vulnerable to high temperature conditions, an issue that will be exacerbated by rising ocean temperatures and one that will be problematic on shallow coastal farms. This presentation discusses the phenotypic and transcriptomic responses of farmed surfclams to heat stress, and the ability for the heat-tolerant phenotype to be passed to subsequent generations.
