CHEmically-mediated MICRobial Interactions maintained by the toxic dinoflagellate OStreopsis cf. ovata

Project description

Investigation and prevention of harmful algal blooms

The proliferation of microalgae of the genus Ostreopsis, known as harmful algal blooms (HABs), affects coastal ecosystems and represents a worsening ecological issue for the coming decades. The EU-funded CHEMICROS project is investigating the essential aspects of the microbial control of Ostreopsis blooms such as metabolism, toxin degradation and identification of bioagents for bloom control. The training project involves international collaboration and research activities with a focus on natural products chemistry and plankton ecology. Using cutting-edge techniques in analytical chemistry, CHEMICROS will develop a methodological toolset which will be applied to improve our understanding of other HAB species and to enable coastal managers to implement preventive measures.
