The Department of Molecular and Applied Biosciences hosted 30 students from the Sv. IDent study tour on Wednesday 22 May 2013. This is a Study Association for the disciplines of forensic science and crime science at Saxion University of Applied Sciences in Enschede, the Netherlands.

Sv. IDent students went on a tour of the campus and met Miriam Hanna (UWSU Vice-President). They enjoyed seeing the library, lecture theatres and analytical laboratories. Dr Linda Percy gave a talk about identification of algae and diatoms in drowning victims and students viewed some dinoflagellates.
