With us at the MEG: Marco got in Dec 2013 his Master Degree at the University of Catania. During his master work at the MEG he conducted an experiment in continuous cultures to test the adaptations of artificially designed bacterial community exposed to semisynthetic antibiotics. His findings, for the first time, suggest microbial coaggregation as an effective phenotype in preserving bacteria exposed to AB in low doses. Marco is now a PhD student in marine microbial ecology within the group of Justin Seymour, at the University of Technology in Sydney (Australia).
