To initiate exploitation of the NCIMB Culture Collection by developing knowledge and processes for screening Streptomyces sp. for novel natural commercial products and the development of new product lines

Rapid Analysis Method for Cyanobacterial Toxins Mar 1, 2018 - Feb 29, 2020
Develop a rapid multi-toxin liquid chromatography method for monitoring of cyanobacterial toxins in potable water in the semi arid region of North East Brazil where most drinking water is sourced from surface reservoirs. Water quality in the region i... Read More

Safe Water for Sri Lanka Jan 31, 2019 - Jan 30, 2022
Freshwater is usually available in Sri Lanka, however around 50% of the country depends on single-household dug wells. Despite preconceptions that there is a low risk of contamination in well water, we have recently found the presence of cyanobacteri... Read More

Polar Actinobacteria for Microcystin degradation Sep 1, 2020 - Aug 31, 2021
Cyanobacteria (blue green algae) cause toxic blooms (microcystins) in aquatic systems as a result of pollution and global warming. Despite microcystins being a global problem, very little chemical data exists on their biodegradation products. This... Read More
