How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I hold a B.Sc in Biology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and a M.Sc in Microbiology from the University of Helsinki. My Master's thesis project was focused on the isolation and characterization of antimicrobial and anticancer compounds from Cyanobacteria.

Cyanobacteria are a group of oxygenic photosynthetic prokaryotes found in almost all habitats on earth including those characterized as extreme environments. It has been observed that the number of studies dealing with the biodiversity of extremophilic cyanobacteria is limited while studies exploring their bioactive potential are even scarcer. The...
Based on aspects of the classical LM morphology, and a combination of ultrastructural and molecular data, a new truebranched cyanobacterium, i.e. Spelaeonaias floccida Lamprinou, Christodoulou, Hernández-Mariné et Economou-Amilli, gen. Nov. Sp. Nov., is described from the Greek cave Vlychada (part of the ‘Diros’ cave complex, Peloponnese, Greece)....
In this study, cyanobacterial assemblages were collected from the limestone cave Daveli (Attica, Greece) during an annual survey (2010-2011). Four sampling areas were selected from the cave entrance inwards, and the main abiotic parameters (PAR, T, RH) were measured at each site. A portion of the collected material was fixed with formaldehyde solut...
