Title of Msc thesis: Investigating novel secondary metabolite pathways in Thalassomonas actiniarum and Thalassomonas viridans.
I am a 24 year old female who loves challenges. I completed a Bsc Biotech degree in 2014 and completed my honors in 2015. I am currently pursuing my masters in biotechnology. My current project involves screening Thalassomonas viridans and Thalassomonas actiniarum for antimicrobial activity followed by identifying the biosynthetic pathways that are responsible for the produced activity. These marine microorganisms have several novel secondary metabolites present with the potential to combat many disease causing microorganisms.
