PhD project title:

Characterization of Zostera marina microbiome.

PhD project description:

My PhD project focuses on the microbiome of the eelgrass Zostera marina, present in the local fjord Kjerstadfjorden near Bodø. The first part of the project uses metagenomics to characterize the diversity of its microbiome (prokaryotes and micro-eukaryotes) in space and time, following several meadows with various environmental condition through the seasons. Secondly it investigates if the Zostera marina microbiome is influenced by its genotype. The last part of my research will focus on the functional roles of this community through various experiments (temperature stress and nutrient enrichment) via meta-transcriptome approach.

Start date: Sep 2015
End date: Autumn 2018
