Next research project at University of British Columbia would be posting in the near future

 

Ameliorating algal biomass productivities through bacterial mutualistic effects

The role of Phytoplankton-bacterial interactions in marine microbial ecology

My master’s thesis aimed at sustainable and better productivities of phytoplankton culturing technique for the future bioenergy and biofuel.   I found two different bacteria, showing growth promoting effects on microalgae, Tetraselmis striata, and one of their mutualistic interactions had been revealed by my published paper in Frontiers in Plant Science.
