Fluorescence characterisation of cyanobacteria

Project Number # 4516-15

Characterisation of cyanobacteria and their metabolites by fluorescence spectroscopy

Project Leader:  Sara Imran Khan

Commercially available fluorescence probes have been extensively used for detection of cyanobacteria but provide limited information on the species causing the bloom. Therefore, this project will focus on applying state of the art equipment to develop more advanced and comprehensive analysis of algal blooms to overcome the associated challenges...
