14th Issue of MaCuMBA Project News Now Available

MACUMBA FINAL COL LOGO

The 14th issue of the MaCuMBA (Marine Microorganisms: Cultivation Methods for Improving their Biotechnological Applications) project newsletter is now available to download from the project’s website: www.macumbaproject.eu. MaCuMBA is a four-year EC FP7-funded project that aims to uncover the untold diversity of marine microbes using cultivation-dependent strategies.

In this issue of MaCuMBA Project News: MaCuMBA Project Coordinator Prof Lucas Stal, from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) in the Netherlands, enthusiastically discusses MaCuMBA’s grand finale event, entitled ‘The Marine Microbiome – Discovery & Innovation,’ where an Open Science Meeting will be held ‘face-to-face’ with an Industry Conference in order to facilitate exciting opportunities and interactions for both sectors. This conference is due to take place in Berlin-Adlershof, Germany, from 27-30 June 2016. A preliminary programme for the event is available in this newsletter. Other interesting information outlined in this issue includes a breakdown of the 1337 different microorganism strains that have been isolated during the MaCuMBA project and details on how to access the four Culture Collections where they are housed.

For more information about MaCuMBA or its final conference, please visit: www.macumbaproject.eu, or contact Marieke Reuver, email: marieke@aquatt.ie.
