WHAT DO WE DO?
Blue Microbe are a group of scientists based in Devon, although we often host and work with visitors from all over the world. We work on marine science research within scientific organisations. Our work is mostly focused on the biology surrounding microalgae and macroalgae (seaweed). Our interests are varied and encompass both innovative and applied research topics.
Innovative research focuses mainly on understanding the role of viruses in the ocean using genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic and metabolomic approaches. Applied research focuses on biocatalysis, bioremediation, biotransformation, bioprocessing and technology development, particularly in regards to both microalgae and macroalgae.
