A new research article supported by the BRIDGE-BS was published on Toxins MDPI!

The research paper with #BRIDGEBS contribution was published on Toxins MDPI, a peer-reviewed, open access journal which provides an advanced forum for studies related to toxinology and all kinds of toxins (biotoxins) from animals, microbes and plants.

The article written by the researchers from BRIDGE-BS partner IO-BAS, Fisheries Research and Education Agency of Fisheries Technology Institute, and Alfred Wegener Institut-Helmholtz Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung.

The aim of the paper titled “New Knowledge on Distribution and Abundance of Toxic Microalgal Species and Related Toxins in the Northwestern Black Sea” is to provide new data and insight into the presence (distribution and abundance) of potentially toxic plankton speciesand the associated phycotoxins in the western/northwestern part of the Black Sea.

The researchers applied an integrated approach (combining morphological and molecular tools) complemented with toxin analysis in order to assure better taxonomic coverage and toxin profiles in natural populations.
