This project grew out of a desire by some teachers to involve their students in more authentic research, and to engage them in molecular work that addressed an important environmental issue. To achieve these ends, Project GROWS is being developed.
The new Invasive Mussel Project (IMP) allows students to use a simple PCR test to distinguish between native and non-native species of mussels. Such data will be valuable in tracking the spread of the non-native mussels throughout Puget Sound.
