Marine algae are one of the natural resources in the marine ecosystem. Under this project with the Jeju National University, Korea we have screened algal species in Sri Lanka for their anti-microbial properties. The research work was handled by the consultants from the Department of Chemistry and Department of Plant Sciences from November 2013 to January 2015.
