Associate Professor Aquaculture and Marine Science
Assoc. Prof. Strugnell applies next generation sequencing tools to help solve bottlenecks in fisheries and aquaculture industries. Supported by the ARC, her laboratory group is investigating population differentiation, recruitment and adaptation in a range of commercially important lobster species. They also work on marine species that are shifting range in response to climate change and are investigating the genetic basis for resilience and susceptibility to temperature stress in abalone. Jan’s group also investigates population and species level molecular evolution in a range of marine species including yellow tailed king fish, oysters, octopods and sharks.
