Identifying how seaweeds become reproductively proficient
|Leader : Dr Juliet Coates (UK)||Vice-Leader : Dr Annette Bruhn (DK)|
A controlled shift of vegetative seaweeds to a fertile stage is usually a bottleneck in seaweed life cycles. Identifying the genetic and chemical factors involved in this process will enable researchers to control the production and propagation of seaweed biomass, and enable selective breeding.
