Abstract: 

GreenTech is a multidisciplinary research project designed to explore new bioproducts from the marine annelid Eulalia viridis. Besides investigating potential applications of toxin secretions and pigments in biotechnological and biomedical industry, GreenTech also aims at showing that the preservation of biodiversity means wealth and development, particularly in such rich areas like the Portuguese coast.
