Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This exercise provides a practical introduction into sampling of microalgae from the field, cell isolation, preparation of growth media and cultivation of microalge.

With cultures prepared in the course, physiologal experiments will be conducted in the course block. Examples are P and N-incorporation, different light supply, resistance against salt and dessication).

Amongst other, following topics will be adressed/thaught/expanded:

- introduction into the industrial potential of microalgae
- introduction into single-cell isolation techniques
- introduction in cultivation methods for microalgae
- introduction into experimental design and handling of microorganisms
- interpretation of results
- scientific presentation of results

Assessment and permitted materials
