Bioprospecting of marine fungi from the High Arctic: A study of high latitude marine fungi from understudied taxa; bioactivity potential, taxonomy and genomics
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-06-17)
Marine fungi comprise a group of organisms that have been overlooked for a long time. Research interest has increased with the realization of the important ecological role and rich chemistry of marine fungi. Marine fungi have yielded thousands of new natural products the last decade, but many taxa remain unstudied. Marine fungi from the Arctic have not been reported in literature in regard to ...
Bioprospecting of marine phytoplankton from large scale cultivation - Effect of culture conditions on bioactivity and biochemistry of the diatom Porosira glacialis
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-06-23)
The diatoms make up the largest and most important group of marine microalgae. They are responsible for a quarter of all inorganic carbon fixation in the ocean and are thus of immense importance for global CO2 sequestration. This makes them good candidates for biological carbon capture and utilization (CCU) by mass cultivation using CO2 emissions from industrial point sources. Large scale cultivation ...
Microbial diversity and ecology in the coastal Arctic seasonal ice zone
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-03-11)
Marine microbes are crucial for the marine food web and carbon cycle. Algae are the main source of organic matter in the oceans with algae blooms triggering reoccurring bacterial succession patterns. Bacteria can recycle nutrients from organic matter coming from land or algae, fueling regenerated primary production. Terrestrial freshwater inputs can have substantial impacts on Arctic marine microbes ...
