International Research Consortium on Molluscan Symbionts (IRCOMS)
This consortium was created to perform fundamental research on the biology, ecology, distribution, and systematics of organisms symbiotically associated with molluscs, including commensal, parasitic, and mutualistic species. Emphasis is currently on the endosymbionts of fresh and brackish water bivalves in North America and Europe, particularly Dreissena spp.
