phD project: Polysaccharides involved in particles formation

Algal polysaccharides play a pivotal role in the marine carbon cycle because some types aggregate into particles that can sink and sequester carbon in the ocean. The types of polysaccharides that aggregate into particles remain unknown due to the analytical challenge to identify them in complex matrices such as marine organic matter.

In this PhD pro­ject, our aim is to in­vest­ig­ate the microalgae polysaccharides involved in particles formation, purify these polysaccharides and elucidate their biological role.

Research Interests

  • Marine glycobiology
  • Polysaccharide composition of microalgae and their exudates
  • Microalgae polysaccharide structure
  • Polysaccharide involved in particles formation
  • Interaction between microalgae polysaccharide and marine bacteria
