Spotlight on the MaCuMBA Project

Learn more about the fascinating MaCuMBA project in this short video which gives a little glimpse into the story of the project: its genesis, objectives and successes, as told by Project Coordinator Prof. Lucas J. Stal. MaCuMBA is an EU-funded project that focuses on increasing the rate of isolation of marine microorganisms using novel high throughput techniques for improved isolation efficiency and cultivation of marine microorganisms and screening for bioactive compounds and biotechnological applications.

Later this month the project will host the Marine Microbiome - Discovery & Innovation Conference, a joint industry conference and open science meeting taking place in Berlin-Adlershof, Germany’s leading science and technology park, from 27-30 June 2016. The conference will focus on the biotechnological applications of marine microbes.

Registration for this unique event is now open and poster abstracts will be accepted until 13 June 2016. For more information about this event and to register, please visit, or contact
