Past Grantees

My research area is Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, as applied to the study of bacterial genomics. This grant allowed me to expand my area of expertise and provided me with a unique and exciting opportunity to join an extremely productive research group which is at the forefront of investigations on comparative and functional genomics of bifidobacteriaMy research stay in the Laboratory of Probiogenomics at the University of Parma, Italy, generated new insights and opportunities for future research, and also allowed me to bolster an existing collaboration between University College Cork/APC Microbiome Ireland and the University of Parma. I strongly encourage all young researchers to avail of this invaluable opportunity FEMS offer of promoting collaborative exchange of expertise between international research teams, which can bring new insights and inspiration in future research.” — Dr Francesca Bottacini

Ecology and Physiology of Halophilic Microorganisms

This Thematic Issue of FEMS Microbiology Letters contains eight papers based on oral presentations or posters presented at the 12th International Conference on Halophilic Microorganisms – Halophiles 2019, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The location for the event recognizes the great diversity of hypersaline environments in Romania and the rich history of the exploration of the microbial diversity in those environments. This Thematic Issue explores the latest developments on the microorganisms living in these unique environments.
