Hit Counts:


  1. To test and optimise existing rRNA probes for toxic species and antibodies for toxins for their application to a microarray
  2. To design and test the specificity of any new probe needed
  3. To construct a universal microarray from the probes tested and optimised by all of the partners for the detection of harmful algae and their toxins
  4. To provide national monitoring agencies with a rapid molecular tool to monitor toxic algae to validate or replace traditional methods for monitoring for toxic algae
  5. To integrate European efforts to monitor coastal waters for toxic algal species
More than 20 species of harmful algae are MIDTAL's target
