Adaptive Ecotyping Of The Toxic Cyanobacterium Cylindrospermopsis Raciborskii To Predict Its Invasive Capacity

Abstract

We change the world while other organisms adapt to these new conditions. Cyanobacteria (blue green algae) increasingly dominate water bodies that were previously free of these harmful blooms. To minimise the spread of these algae, this project will study the genetic basis that determines how rapidly they can evolve and adapt to a changing planet.
