BluePharmTrain is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network of 17 European academic and industrial partners collaborating to train young scientists in multidisciplinary aspects of blue biotechnology. Harvesting marine sponges for the extraction of bioactive compounds is often highly unsustainable, and the chemical synthesis of promising compounds is o...

In lower metazoans, the aggregative properties of dissociated cells leading to in vitro stable multicellular aggregates have furnished a remarkable experimental material to carry out investigations in various research fields. One of the main expectations is to find good models for the study in vitro of the first steps of biomineralization processes...

Full-text available
The bacterium Vibrio coralliilyticus has been implicated as the causative agent of coral tissue loss diseases (collectively known as white syndromes) at sites across the Indo-Pacific and represents an emerging model pathogen for understanding the mechanisms linking bacterial infection and coral disease. In this study, we used a mini-Tn7 transposon...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The protection of the so-called essential fish habitat (EFH: habitats where fish concentrate for recruitment, spawning or feeding) from the negative impacts of human activities -including fishing activities- is one of the most important concerns throughout the Mediterranean basin. A key challenge in the effective management of marine resources is t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Sustainable management and exploitation of coralligenous bio-constructions is one of the most important concerns of the last decade throughout the Mediterranean basin. Their importance has been recognised under different international, European and national conservation frameworks (e.g. Habitats Directive; European Water Framework Directive). In pa...
Article
Full-text available
DNA- and RNA-based PCR and reverse-transcription real-time PCR assays were developed for diagnostic detection of the vcpA zinc-metalloprotease implicated in the virulence of the coral pathogen Vibrio coralliilyticus. Both PCR methods were highly specific for V. coralliilyticus and failed to amplify strains of closely-related Vibrio species. The ass...
Conference Paper
Coralligenous habitats are considered an important bioconstruction that confers great structural and functional complexity hosting more than 20% of the Mediterranean species. Besides their importance, little is known of their ecological needs to achieve adequate management. Fisheries can pose a serious threat on benthic communities, damaging or des...

Article
Full-text available
The lack of knowledge in developmental features, reproduction cycles and evolutionary traits of lower metazoans as cnidarians in relation to more evolved ones, has been in many cases accused by the difficulty of maintaining cell cultures in laboratory conditions. We have tested a method usually applied for Porifera, leading to the production of pri...

In this study we assess the capacity of the Benthic Terrain Model data for discriminating the diverse coralligenous habitats along the Ligurian coast (Italy) and for providing baseline maps for future monitoring of the changes and evolution of coralligenous environments in the Mediterranean basin. We test the effectiveness of the model and the geop...
Article
Full-text available
Mass mortality events of benthic invertebrates in the Mediterranean Sea are becoming an increasing concern with catastrophic effects on the coastal marine environment. Sea surface temperature anomalies leading to physiological stress, starvation and microbial infections were identified as major factors triggering animal mortality. However the highe...
Data
Output of the three-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) applied to test differences in average VAI values among P. clavata samples collected in different geographic areas (Portofino promontory vs Tavolara island vs Pantelleria island) at different depth (photic vs mesophotic) and showing different health status condition (healthy vs diseased). (DOCX)
Article
Recent studies highlight an increase in the frequency and intensity of marine mass mortalities of several species over the past 30–40 years, mainly in tropical and temperate areas. In the Mediterranean Sea these episodes particularly affect benthic suspension feeders, such as sponges and cnidarians. The main objective of this work was to document t...

BluePharmTrain is a multi-disciplinary alliance of 17 European academic and industrial partners working in collaboration to train young scientists in multi-disciplinary aspects of blue biotechnology. It has been funded as a Marie Curie Initial Training Network that started at 1 September 2013 and will run till 31 August 2017. The focus of the project is on using marine sponges for the development of new pharmaceuticals. Marine sponges have been long since recognised as the most prolific source in the marine environment, presenting more than 7,000 bioactive molecules with the number of bioactive compounds discovered still increasing every year. In addition, sponges are known to host extremely diverse microbial communities that may account for up to half of the sponge’s body mass. Hence, the development of methods to obtain significant quantities of sponge-derived bioactives will most likely have high impact on exploitation of the biosynthetic capacities of sponges and their microbes. BluePharmTrain has the following key objectives: - Establish routines for the isolation of sponge-specific microorganisms by integrating novel high-throughput cultivation strategies and state-of-the-art genomics and transcriptomics. - Establish sponge cell cultures of target species by translating ecology into technology. - Develop heterologous expression tools for sponge-derived bioactives. - In addition, we aim to provide a fundamental understanding of the sponge holobiont. http://www.benthis.eu/en/bluepharmtrain/About.htm
