Project Details


The purpose of the project is to identify the bioactive bacteria collected on the Galathea3 expedition (see above) and evaluate their potential use in a range of areas. We will study the antibacterial activity of the marine bacteria, their possible interference with virulence regulation as well as the possible immunomodulatory activites. We will address the issue of potential resistance development. Also, the project will analyse the "back-ground" samples collected on the expedition - using molecular based approaches such as CARD FISH.
