Laboratory of algal biotechnology

Microorganisms are very diverse group of organisms with a great ability to produce compounds that have potential for many practical applications. In this context, the research of algal biotechnology department is aimed at two major trends: optimizing the technologies of algal production (algal biotechnology) and cyanobacterial secondary metabolites (bioactive compounds).

 

BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS - Pavel Hrouzek

The main research topic in our group is cyanobacterial metabolites and their effect on human cell lines in vitro from both a pharmacological and toxicological point of view.
