Marine Biodiversity as Sustainable Resource of Disease-Suppressive Microbes and Bioprotectants for Aquaculture and Crop Diseases

Project description

Harnessing marine biodiversity for the discovery of novel bioprotectants

Bioprospecting can provide microbiomes and microbial natural products that promote disease resistance by focusing on unique host–microbe interactions in marine sponges, microalgae and fish. The EU-funded MARBLES project will employ an ecology-based bioprospecting strategy to reveal the bioactive agents in disease-suppressive microbiomes and explore host- and microbe-derived chemicals that elicit the production of bioactive compounds. Results will include microbial consortia and bioactive natural products, their derivatives and elicitors, which can be used to combat infectious diseases in the agrochemical and aquaculture industries and in healthcare. In addition, the sustainable production of bioprotectants will enhance fish production, reduce harvesting pressure on wild stocks and facilitate the transition to bio-based and circular solutions.
