Description
Thallusin was the first compound identified to induce thallus differentiation in macroalgae. This intriguing chemical mediator is produced by bacteria that socialize with algae in their natural habitat. Thallusin exemplifies a fundamental symbiotic chemical communication between macroalgae and epiphytic bacteria in the marine environment. However, its general impact on the underlying microbial communities and its chemical mode-of-action remains to be clarified. Therefore we propose a multifaceted research program to study the morphogenesis-inducing mechanism of algae by chemical morphogen. The proposed project will focus at four different objectives. 1) methodol...
