Project title: Novel genetic early warning systems for harmful algae in the NSW oyster
Supervisors: Shauna Murray and Penny Ajani
I am Abanti Barua. I started my PhD on March 2017 with Seafood Safety: Marine Algal biotoxins research group. My thesis topic is “Molecular ecology and diversity of Alexandrium species and toxin related genes in Australia”. I came here to pursue my PhD as IRS (International research scholar) and UTSP(UTS president scholarship) scholar.
