The aim of Task 3.4 is to develop and test innovative methods for the molecular detection of phytoplankton, harmful algal blooms and pollutants through their effect on microbial communities. This will include the development of novel molecular sensors for the detection, quantification and identification of organisms, microbial markers of pollutant exposure or toxin concentrations in marine coastal waters. Bacterial species and genes which can be used as markers of high nutrient load or hydrocarbon contamination in the marine environment were identified through bacterial community analysis in contaminated environment and literature reviews. Assays using quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) for the quantification of these organisms were developed and tested through environmental sampling campaigns and laboratory exposure studies. The most promising markers and assays were selected for further study in conjunction with other biological and chemical sensors, and will be f.....
