By bringing together people at the Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), King's College London (KCL) and the Natural History Museum, London this project would unite expertise in the application of cutting edge molecular approaches, bioinformatics, molecular diagnostics, fish parasitology, myxozoan biology and fieldwork to expand understanding of myxozoan biodiversity in tropical environments. The project would engender substantial training for early career researchers based in Brazil, promote scientific visits, and establish the first academic exchange between KCL and UNIFESP and establish new techniques in the laboratory of the UNIFESP applicant. Characterising myxozoan biodiversity by genome skimming and gene expression studies on the basis of bisulphite sequencing libraries will provide a major advance in the field by demonstrating the application of these techniques for the first time in a group only recently recognized as a major radiation of endoparasitic cnidarians whose diversity may rival that of their iconic free-living relatives including jellyfish, anemones and corals.
