Investigation of the inhibitory effect of Bacillus pumilus on Nannochloropsis salina
MetadataShow full item record
Microalgae have the potential to be a source of a wide range of industrial materials. To provide the biomass for these products, algae are grown in large volumes. Previous research has shown that there are other microbial species living in algal cultivation systems at these scales, but little is known about the interactions among them. Some of the bacteria in algae cultivations have been identified. Some species can inhibit algal growth, while others are growth promoting. In this research, we focused on one algal species, Nannochloropsis salina, and a bacterial species, Bacillus pumilus. In ...
