Research Projects at EPSAG

The department EPSAG with the SAG Culture Collection focuses on the Biodiversity of Algae in research and education.

  • In various research projects molecular signatures, i.e. DNA sequences and genomic fragments, are determined to assess the diversity of algae and cyanobacteria in certain habitats and infer their phylogenetic relationships.
  • To study algal community structures in various terrestrial habitats culture-independent molecular methods as well as isolating new culture strains including the study of algal morphological features are used.
