Research about Brazilian marine biodiversity brings researchers from 5 countries together
Date:9/3/2010

The So Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) presents the Marine Biodiversity Workshop: Recent Improvements in Bioprospection, Biogeography and Phylogeography to be held on September 9 and 10. This scientific meeting is intended to stimulate the formation of research groups involving both Brazilian and foreign scientists towards the development of research on bioprospection, geographic distribution of sea organisms in the Brazilian Coast as well as the search for natural bioactive compounds for pharmaceutical production.

The Marine Biodiversity Workshop also proposes research incentives for the production of data to support the making of laws about the use and protection of diverse marine biomes such as the ones that have already been created in the State of So Paulo with data produced since 1999 by the Biota-FAPESP Program for terrestrial biomes.

"It is a Biota-FAPESP Program's desire to stimulate research and enhance the debate on the sustainable use of Brazilian marine biodiversity resources in cooperative projects involving research groups from Brazil and other countries", says Roberto Berlinck, professor of the Chemistry Institute of the University of So Paulo (USP). "Thus, it will be also possible to educate more scientists to act in this area", concludes the researcher, who takes part of the workshop organization.

Participants from Brazil, the USA, New Zealand, Canada, and Belgium are going to discuss the obtainment of products through different biotechnological applications, the planning of human intervention in the sea environment when faced with the economic relevance of activities such as low environmental impact fishing and the Brazilian marine biodiversity characterization itself.

William Fenical, from the Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine (CMBB) of University of California, San Diego (UCSD), researches organic compounds derived from marine microorganisms with effect on cancer and other diseases.
