Antimicrobial peptides in seaweed

Antimicrobial peptides in seaweed: identification and functional characterisation of antimicrobial peptides in seaweed

The aim of the project is to identify and characterise antimicrobial peptides from a range of seaweed species and is particularly focused on the functional effect of the peptides extracted from seaweed products. The research is conducted in a partnership with This is Seaweed Ltd with funding from the GMIT Research and Innovation Strategic Endowment programme and the IRC Enterprise Partnership Scheme Postgraduate Scholarship.
