After a strange academic year due to the health crisis, the world can today be proud of two new biologists.

Carla Coedo has defended today her Degree Thesis entitled «Validation of the cockle mitochondrial genome Cerastoderma glaucum (Poiret, 1789)», experimental research that included putting the boots on to collect samples and developing genetics tools in the lab.

Ana Copena has defended today her Degree Thesis entitled «Characterisation of a genomic molecular marker of a marine transmissible cancer», experimental research carried out before quarantine locked us up at home.

Both theses are framed in Scuba Cancers project that aims to find the genetic causes of contagious metastases under the sea. Both students have been awarded the highest grade. Congratulations!!
