Short abstract and comments

MaCuMBA aims at improving the isolation rate and growth efficiency of marine microorganisms from conventional and extreme habitats, by applying innovative methods, and the use of automated highthroughput procedures. Isolated microorganisms as well as their genomes will be screened for a wide range of bioactive products and other properties of biotechnological interest. MaCuMBA is targeted to SMEs and industry and they make a significant part of the consortium, ensuring that the project focuses on the interests of these partners. This is a 48 months project starting in August 2012, involving 23 partners, with an overall EU contribution of 9 M €.
