Why microbial interactions in macroalgae?

Bacterial communities associated with Ulva spp. play an important functional role both in morphogenesis and reproduction of the algae, considering Ulva and its associated microbiota a singular functional entity or holobiont.

Moreover, Ulva spp. host antibiotic-producing bacteria (APB, Phaeobacter sp.) with known antagonism against fish pathogens.

Using a multi-disciplinary approach, including -omic techniques, the research will contribute to the understanding of the role of those APB, and the conditions that favour their predominance in Ulva spp.

which would have implications in disease control in fish-algae Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture Systems with Recirculation (IMTA-RAS).
