Scientists from North and South Carolina recently completed a study that highlights the role of gene groups in embryo development. They conducted their research using striped bass (Morone saxatilis), a finfish used in aquaculture that has problems with arrested development in eggs. Results of this research, funded in part by North Carolina Sea Grant and South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium, are published in the open access journal, PLOS ONE.
North Carolina Sea Grant is seeking a marine aquaculture extension specialist to be based in Morehead City. Details and instructions are at jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/36675.
