April, 2021:

The DGTalAquaLab joined the Pharo Consortium as an Academic Member.

Pharo is a software platform developed by the INRIA “RMOD” team, a research team from Lille INRIA research center.

This membership will benefit the work on the development of Re:Mobidyc our software to develop Individual-Based Model for studying the population dynamics of aquatic microorganisms.

 

March, 2021:

Our collaborative work with a French and Taiwanese Team came to fruition with a published paper in Ecology and Evolution.

This time the model developed was not about copepod but fish and their response to fishing.

Check out our paper for more information.

February, 2021:

Our collaborative work with a French and Korean Team came to fruition with a published paper in Ecological Modelling.

Here we focused on the effect of UV-B radiation on copepod reproduction.

Check out our paper for more information.

September, 2020:

September 11th, was the graduation ceremony for student graduating. Miss Jannatul Ferdaus Ara received officially her Master diploma for all the credits she accumulated and her research work on the effect of Typhoon on Lake Kasumigaura’s phytoplankton.

Congratulation Ara-chan and have a safe trip back to Bangladesh!

 

August, 2020:

Kasuki passed the entrance exam for the graduate school of the Department Geoscience. He will start is Master degree in April 2021 and will be working on the effect of trace metal on the population dynamics of copepod.

Congratulation Kasuki!

Press released

November 4-6, 2019:

The DGtal Aqua lab was at the 4th Asian Marine Biology Symposium in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

September 18-21, 2019:

The DGtal Aqua lab was at the Annual joint meeting of the plankton society of Japan and the Japanese Association of Benthology in Shizuoka, Japan. Congratulations to Ara, Haruka, Yousuke and Mitsuki on their poster presentations!

nb: Being in the organizing committee, Gael dealt with the abstract book cover and the public symposium poster (left).
