Abstract:
The laboratory of Microbiology of Ghent University (LM-UGent) was founded in 1959. The research topics of the laboratory are: microbial diversity, taxonomy, ecology and diagnosis in different sectors including the medical sector, food sector and environmental microbiology (including marine microbiology). The laboratory also holds the Belgian Coordinated Collections of Microorganisms/Laboratory of Microbiology, Ghent University (BCCM/LMG) Bacteria Collection which contains more than 27,000 strains, belonging to over 500 genera and 3,000 species. The BCCM/LMG Bacteria Collection was established in 1982, funded by BELSPO. This ensured the future of the bacteria collection which has steadily grown since the establishment of the laboratory.

The marine research of this group concentrates on the following topics:
- Biodiversity effects on the functioning of marine benthic ecosystems focusing on the role (and diversity) of bacteria, in particular in the Paulinapolder in the Scheldt estuary and the Belgian part of the North Sea. Special attention goes to the nitrogen and carbon cycles, intertidal benthic biofilms and interactions between diatoms, bacteria and copepods;
- Study of marine methanotrophs;
- Study of the biodiversity, specificity and function of endosymbiotic bacteria in coenocytic green algae;
- Identification and classification of new marine bacteria.

The group is active within national and international projects and collaborates intensively with laboratories within Ghent University, such as the Marine Biology research group, the Phycology research group, laboratory of Protistology and Aquatic Ecology and the laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Technology. The laboratory is a member of the Marine@UGent consortium and participates in the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC).
