For undergraduate students

We have added two new thesis titles to the list (Slovenian version here). All undergraduate students interested should contact Aleš.

New thesis titles are:
  • The origins of Slovenian populations of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
    Rainbow trout is not native to Slovenia, but after extensive stocking some self-sustaining viable populations were formed. Students are expected to collect samples from these populations, isolate DNA from fin clips and perform genotypization over a number of highly polymorphic microsatellite loci. Results will be compared to population studies of North-American studies to identify parental population(s).
  • Tolerance of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) embryos to Pseudomonas fluorescens
    P. fluorescens is opportunistic fish pathogen and is not a health risk to people and animals, but it does increase mortality of fish embryos. Experiment is run in parallels with different exposures to P. fluorescens against control (no infection). All phases of embryo development are examined with a microscope, the entire experiment is performed on freshly fertilised fish eggs in our laboratory.
