MetaCopepod taxonomic meeting, HCMR Crete, 9-13 June 2014

Zooplankton taxonomists, who participate in the project, will meet in the premises of HCMR in Crete to sort and identify the copepod and cladoceran species from samples they have collected so far from different parts of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The identified specimens will be then photographed to feed the image analysis software and sequenced to populate the genetic reference database.

Moreover, during the meeting, all partners of the project will meet, discuss and exchange ideas on how the MetaCopepod project could be better implemented.
