Hard clams are economically important in Virginia, but we know very little about their genetics. As with humans, we can learn a lot about hard clams from their DNA. Ann Ropp, VIMS graduate student, will share her work on developing genetic resources for the hard clam. She will tell us what DNA reveals about a clam’s relatives, and how clam genetics can be used by scientists and growers in Virginia and beyond.

There is no charge for this presentation. Seating limited to 60 people.
