Project: Biodiversity of microbial mats in Antarctica.
- project duration
- 01-NOV-98 – 28-FEB-01
- The biodiversity of microbial mats, present in Antarctic lakes will be investigated on the basis of culturable and nonculturable micro-organisms. The isolated micro-organisms will be screened for their potential production of bioactive compounds. The laboratory of microbiology is in charge of isolation and identification of heterotrophic bacteria.
