Centre for Marine Bio-Innovation

The Centre for Marine Bio-Innovation (CMB) is an international leader in both fundamental and applied research in the areas of microbiology and ecology. A particular focus of the CMB’s research is the interactions between microorganisms and eukaryotic host organisms within the holobiont concept. The scientific expertise within the CMB lies in the combined use of ecological and molecular approaches to gain insight into both positive (e.g. healthy development of the host) and negative aspects (e.g. disease) of holobionts. Underpinning these approaches are the CMB’s technical expertises in experimental ecology, analytical chemistry, environmental microbiology and -omics technologies. These combined and cutting-edge skills have the capacity and required resolution to accurately reveal information on holobiont function, both on a broad, environmental scale and a detailed, molecular level.
