Molecular Ichthyology: From river to river: the study of genetic migration in fishes.

General objective:  study of the evolution of migratory fish species through molecular approaches: (i) study of the conservation and evolution of migratory species through the study of the molecular barcoding of museum and fresh samples, (ii) study of the evolution of the genetic marker GREB1L, strictly associated with freshwater entry maturation phenotypes in several inland migrating species, (iii) genomic analysis of species involved in migratory phenomena, such as catadromy, anadromy, and freshwater migratory fish, using non- migrants as references.
