Internship and study of cyanobacteria at Åbo Akademi University in Turku

PhD student of our Department, Łukasz Wejnerowski is currently on 3-month internship at the Department of Biosciences, Åbo Akademi University (Turku, Finland) in research group of Dr Jussi Meriluoto (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jussi_Meriluoto). Scope of the internship includes 1) toxin analyses (HPLC-DAD and HPLC-MS/MS methods) of several strains of filamentous cyanobacteria that are available at the library of cyanobacterial strains at our department and 2) testing in laboratory conditions how infochemicals released by grazers (Daphnia) affect toxin production in filamentous cyanobacteria. This internship is funded by National Science Centre in Poland (Project No. UMO-2016/20/T/NZ8/00303).
