cooperation

knowledge │ skills │ ideas │information

We are looking for co-workers to solve the puzzle of knowledge about the euglenoids, especially gaps in knowledge about their their taxonomy, ecology and biogeography.

If you want to join our project, feel free to contact us at egdproject19_at_gmail.com.

If you are interested in cooperation possibilities in more detail, look at the following topics:

Data to the distribution database

  • Share your floristic data with others – put it in a database.
  • Do you have an interesting floristic publication? Please share with us.
  • Do you have any of the proposed flagship species in your samples? Please let us know.

Material for further studies

  • We are looking for:
    • natural populations dominated by biomass of one or two species of Trachelomonas;
    • morphologically interesting Trachelomonas species for further molecular studies;
    • any species of euglenods suitable for isolation or molecular studies - let's create a common project.

Research short-term Stay

  • Under Erasmus+ program or similar options for short stays.
  • We offer to you:
    • free acommonaditon (for short time, 1-2 weeks )
    • sampling and species determination
    • molecular biology laboratory and laboratory of electron microscopy (SEM and TEM)
    • equipment for isolation and cultivation of euglenoids
    • the possibility of a joint project (taxonomy, ecology field etc.)

Students short-term exchange

Consultation

  • We could help you and discuss together about problematic taxons in your samples.
  • Determination species from reasonable resolution and magnification photographs (and in reasonable quantities, such as around 10 photos).


Nagoya Protocol – important legal information

  • Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity.
    • Entry into force 12/10/2014
    • Access and Benefit-Sharing Clearing House: absch.cbd.int (contact details, information on access legislation and other ABS measures, virtual library)
  • Czech Republic does not regulate access to its genetic resources (no PIC/MAT required).
