Abstract:
The laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Technology (LabMET) was founded in 1978 and specialises in the study and application of mixed microbial cultures and communities. LabMET focuses on the optimal management of these microbial resources (Microbial Resource Management, MRM) enabling the development of novel products and processes to improve the environment and human health in the most sustainable way. More specifically, LabMET applies this approach in the fields of applied microbial ecology, functional feed, medical microbial ecology, risk assessment, biomaterials and nanotechnology, water treatment, aquaculture, bio-energy, and soils and sediments.

LabMET conducts research on the following marine topics:
- Microbial diversity and activity in deep-marine sediment ecosystems;
- Simulation of the deep-sea biosphere using a continuous high-pressure bioreactor;
- Bioremediation of marine ecosystems.

The laboratory collaborates intensively with several foreign institutes (e.g. Shanghai JiaoTong University, University of Milan, Technical University of Crete and University of Bologna) and participates in the UGent Aquaculture R&D consortium and the IOF consortium Aquaculture Ghent University. Furthermore, the group is involved in several European and national marine research projects.
