Marine Microbiome Roadmap

Marine Microbiome

We are on the threshold of a new and exciting era of discovery in the oceans

that will shape the development of human endeavours for decades to come.

Within the scope of the AANChOR project and the All Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, and following the previous capacity building & network events held by the Joint Pilot Action All-Atlantic Marine Biotechnology Initiative (AA-BIOTECMAR), on the 27th and 28th of June (from 10:00 to 13:00 BRT) the All-Atlantic Aquaculture & Marine Biotechnology Startup Accelerator Workshop will be hosted by AA-BIOTECMAR.  AGENDA


The World Ocean Day  8 June

Did you know?

  • The Ocean produces at least 50% of the planet´s oxygen (with the help of marine microbiome)

  • Oceans absorb about 30% of carbon dioxide produced by humans, buffering the impacts of global warming.
