Cell free Microcystis aeruginosa spent medium affects Daphnia magna survival and stress response. (2021)
Journal Article
BOJADZIJA SAVIC, G., COLINET, H., BORMANS, M., EDWARDS, C., LAWTON, L.A., BRIAND, E. and WIEGAND, C. 2021. Cell free Microcystis aeruginosa spent medium affects Daphnia magna survival and stress response. Toxicon [online], 195, pages 37-47. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.toxicon.2021.03.009

Primary consumers in freshwater ecosystems, such as the zooplankton organism Daphnia magna, are highly affected by cyanobacteria, both as they may use it as a food source but also by cyanobacterial metabolites present in the water. Here, we investiga... Read More about Cell free Microcystis aeruginosa spent medium affects Daphnia magna survival and stress response..

Comparative metabologenomics analysis of polar actinomycetes. (2021)
Journal Article
SOLDATOU, S., ELDJÁRN, G.H., RAMSAY, A., VAN DER HOOFT, J.J.J., HUGHES, A.H., ROGERS, S. and DUNCAN, K.R. 2021. Comparative metabologenomics analysis of polar actinomycetes. Marine drugs [online], 19(2), article 103. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/md19020103

Biosynthetic and chemical datasets are the two major pillars for microbial drug discovery in the omics era. Despite the advancement of analysis tools and platforms for multi-strain metabolomics and genomics, linking these information sources remains...

Hazardous cyanobacteria integrity response to velocity gradient and powdered activated carbon in water treatment plants. (2021)
Journal Article
OLIVEIRA, S., CLEMENTE, A., MENEZES, I., GOIS, A., CARLOTO, I., LAWTON, L. and CAPELO-NETO, J. 2021. Hazardous cyanobacteria integrity response to velocity gradient and powdered activated carbon in water treatment plants. Science of the total environment [online], 773, article ID 145110. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2021.145110

Although some studies have investigated the impact caused by chemicals used on water treatment (coagulants and oxidants) on cyanobacteria integrity, the isolated effect of shear stress during coagulation is still not fully understood. This study eval... Read More about Hazardous cyanobacteria integrity response to velocity gradient and powdered activated carbon in water treatment plants..
