Course Objective: The course is designed to elucidate the importance of microalgae and cyanobacteria in natural ecosystems, in order to prepare students for solving various problems related to water quality and environmental protection. The emphases are also placed on understanding the importance of algae and cyanobacteria regarding their biochemical, physiological and genetic potentials as well as biotechnological applications.

Course Outcome: to demonstrate understanding of specific cell organisation and growth patterns of microalgiae and cyanobacteria; to explain the main pathways in physiology and genetics of microalgae and cyanobacteria; to describe the role of microalgae and cyanobacteria in different ecosystems; to explain the role of microalgae and cyanobacteria in various biotechnological processes; preparation of culture collection.
