This project will investigate the microbial diversity associated with marine species of coastal hydrothermal vents, to understand the biological interactions between host / microbioma in face of environmental changes. It is also aimed to identify bacteria with potential for new marine bioactive natural products that can be used in a wide range of applications and allow the establishment of innovative investments with economic / social benefits for the Azorean population.
