Phycomorph @ IPC11
Phycomorph presented its objectives and results in a poster (number 59).
THE COST ACTION PHYCOMORPH:GETTING MORE KNOWLEDGE ON MACROALGAL DEVELOPMENT AND REPRODUCTION TO IMPROVE SEAWEED AQUACULTURE
PHYCOMORPH (COST Action FA1406; 2015–2019) is an international academic network comprising research teams dedicated to the identification of the biological events governing the development and reproduction of macroalgae. Despite the fact that macroalgae were amongst the first multicellular eukaryotes to emerge on earth, almost nothing is known about the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in their development.
PHYCOMORPH contributes to fill the gap between past knowledge – mainly descriptive – and the increasing demand for answers to functional issues, by supporting networking activities involving 20 European countries and 8 non-European countries, and disseminating knowledge to the scientific communities and to the public.
