The Bazaruto Center of Scientific Studies manages large amounts of data and samples, which are not always used in-house or published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. They contribute to the mission of BCSS of providing open-data access and availability of samples for external collaboration. We would like to make the material available, in particular, for early-career scientists in their Master or Doctoral stage, but we also open the door to Postdoctoral and Professional scientists.
Below, you can find the latest opportunities available for direct collaboration with BCSS.
Time-series samples on pelagic & migratory fish biopsy for molecular & biochemical analyses
Keywords: Molecular, Genetics, DNA, Isotopes, Biochemical
Details: 3 year month-to-month biopsy samples from pelagic & migratory fish in the Bazaruto Archipelago (species XXX) preserved in 99.9% ethanol molecular grande at 8º C available, alongside complete meta-data and environmental data per sample. The opportunity is available for Master, PhD students, and professional researchers or companies to develop molecular, genetics, isotope, biochemical or similar studies. Details on Method available at https://88l7m43jp9rzgtcvrwxijzdh-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/OO-themes-methodology-final.pdf (page 9-12)
Time-series ST600 hydrophones accoustic data (soundscapes, marine mammals, ocean sounds)
Keywords: Hydrophone, Accoustic, Marine mammals, Whales, Soundscape, Ocean sound
Details: 2 year accoustic data recorded with ST600 hydrophones sitting at 30 m in two locations of the Bazaruto Archipelago alongside complete meta-data and environmental data per recording. The opportunity is available for Master, PhD students, and professional researchers or companies to use or develop algorhytms or artificial intelligence procedures to analyze the data, correlate with environmental parameters, find species not visually seem or similar.
