Julian’s PhD project focuses on the interaction between marine microalgae and bacteria. Marine microalgae harbour a distinct bacterial community which is essential for algal growth and performance. To unravel the putative holobiontic nature of microalgae, axenic microalgae are substituted with culturable bacterial isolates obtained from the microalgal holobiont. Main goal of Julian’s current work is to understand chemically mediated processes and identify relevant compounds that structure the microalgal holobiont.
