GHaNA (Genus Haslea, New marine resources for Aquaculture) project final meeting will take place in Szczecin on 19 and 20 May 2022. The project partners will held presentations and discussions about the diatom Haslea and the marennine – its famous blue pigment.
GHaNA is funded by European Union research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 734708 / GHANA / H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016 and co-led by Le Mans Université, France and Cardiff University (UK). It gathers 25 partners from 13 countries who collaborate to determine biological and chemical diversity of Haslea diatoms using biological, physiological and genomic approaches and, in the long run, to developp mass-scale production for viable industrial applications by maximising biomass production and associated high-value compound production. The project increases our functional knowledge about this original bioresource, with regard to global change, species competition, bio-optics and fitness.
