Chapter 1: Presentation of the huge diversity of heterotrophic marine microorganisms focusing on the link between biodiversity (adaptation to different habitats, metabolism, communication/interaction..) and their potential biotechnological applications (4h G Le Blay)
Chapter 2 : Presentation of innovative approaches used for marine heterotrophic microorganism isolation (dilution to extinction, micro-encapsulation, optical tweezers, diffusion chambers etc.) and culture (high throughput cultural techniques and design of culture media) (4h G Le Blay)
