Revealing and controlling previously unexplored H2S bacteria (REACT2S) (39967)

Project Details


Toxic gas, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), is a major challenge for sustainable aquaculture production, leading to massive production losses even in very low concentrations. This project aims to provide knowledge on the identity, ecology, and physiology of novel H2S producers, which produce a significant share of H2S in aquaculture environments, possibly through an alternative biochemical route than the traditional dissimilatory sulfate reduction pathway. The project also aims to examine under which conditions H2S production activates and to develop microbiome engineering-based solutions for controlling H2S production in the aquaculture environments.

The project is funded by the Sapere Aude grant (Independent Research Fund Denmark).
