On Saturday, October 6 at the PRBB Open Day, teachers and students from participating schools from Tomelloso and Baza shared their citizen science experience in the Melanogaster Catch The Fly! project, the first European Network for Citizen Science in Adaptation Genomics. The students, selected from the participating schools, also had the opportunity to meet the Laboratory of Functional and Evolutionary Genomics (González Lab) at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF, Barcelona).
Show the Fly!, in addition to rewarding the students already participating in the #MelanogasterCTF project, seeks to motivate them to continue their participation, and to generate enthusiasm among the students of Zaragoza, Andalusia, Madrid, and Catalonia who have joined the network this year.
This experience not only contributes to the consolidation and expansion of #MelanogasterCTF at the national level but is also very useful in the transmission of new knowledge and in the promotion of scientific culture among teachers, students, educational institutions and municipalities far from the major research centers
