Resumo

DIONISI, Hebe M; LOZADA, Mariana  e  OLIVERA, Nelda L. Bioprospection of marine microorganisms: potential and challenges for Argentina. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.2, pp. 133-133. ISSN 0325-7541.

The marine environments of Argentina have a remarkable extension, as well as high biological productivity and biodiversity of both macro- and microorganisms. Despite having a great potential for biotechnological applications, the microorganisms inhabiting these ecosystems remain mostly unexplored and unexploited. In this review, we study the research topics and the interactions among Argentinean laboratories, by analyzing current articles published on biotechnology-related marine microbiology by researchers of this country. In addition, we identify the challenges and opportunities for Argentina to take advantage of the genetic potential of its marine microorganisms. Finally, we suggest possible actions that could improve the development of this research field, as well as the utilization of this knowledge to solve societal needs.

Palavras-chave : Bioprospection; Marine microorganisms; Challenges; Argentina.
