‘DNA detectives’: Which fish swim in the Rhine?

In this workshop you will learn how to identify fish species from the tiny DNA traces they leave behind when swimming in the Rhine. As “DNA detectives” you will decode the unique genetic code of our native fishes. Afterwards, you will be able to look at the fish up close in our aquarium and get to know them. This event is connected to the BGE project (https://biodiversitygenomics.eu/) and the Rhine expedition ship of the German Ocean Foundation (https://www.meeresstiftung.de/), which will be anchored in Bonn on the 18th of June. Registration required!
