Elucidating previously undiscovered stinging organelles in the Irukandji jellyfish Carukia barnesi

Indicative Funding
$5,000 over 1 year
Summary
Nematocysts are stinging organelles found in jellyfish that contain and inject their venom. From the highly venomous irukandji jellyfish Carukia barnesi, a previously undiscovered type of nematocyst has been found. We seek to use high magnification and fluorescent microscopy to determine the nature of this new nematocyst, to further understand the venom ecology of this lethal jellyfish.
