Biosensors for the Measurement of Bivalve Valve Movement
Jackson State University
Principal Investigators: Kamal Ali (Lead), Francis Tuluri, Hui-Ru Shih, Ramzi Kafoury, Sudha Yerramilli
Abstract: The Jackson State University team will make use of the advances in electronic and computer technology to develop and build a sensor system that can remotely measure and record the valve movement of bivalves. This system will be used in Mississippi Gulf oyster reefs to continuously measure and report the valve gaping of oysters. This data, together with data from the other University partners, may be used to better assess the health of oyster reefs.
