Isolation of psychrophilic bacteria and detection of glyphosate

So far only a small proportion of bacteria is explored and isolated. Therefore, this project’s goal is to isolate new psychrophilic bacteria and to capture their physiological metabolic properties. Additionally, we want to proof the existence of the glyphosate herbicide.

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

It is already known that pesticides have an influence on the antibiotic resistance of bacteria, and also that such resistanceoccurs in the Arctic air. For this reason, soil and watersamples will be collected in the course of the fieldwork and investigated in Germany. The aimis to isolation knowns pychrophilic bacteria and to investigate the physiological metabolic properties. Furthermore, antibiotictests will beper for me to find out wether antibiotic activities similar to those in bacteria from our local latitudes can be detected. In addition, new antibiotic ally active natural substances for medical and biotechnological applications will be specifically sought. The glyphosate test, which will also be carried out on the samples, will make it possible to establish a link between the presence of this herbicide and possible antibiotic resistance if glyphosate is found. This project is being conducted as part of the TA2021 expedition. The locations for sampling can be chosen at will. It is anticipated that samples will be taken at all shore visits. These will include about one liter for watersamples and about 50 ml of the top, loose soil layer. Possibly small bones, which are of nouse for any of the archaeological projects, will be collected for impression samples.
