Project: Intra- and interspecific variation in fatty acid composition and production in pennate diatoms

project duration
01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-08
The specific aims of the project are (1) the analysis of the poly unsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) composition within pennate marine and lacustrine diatoms using a gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS) (2) assessing intraspecific variation in PUFA composition (3) the study of changes in PUFA production and composition under light, nutrient and salinity stress using ecophysiological experiments.
