Diatoms are photosynthetic microalgae that produce 20% of the oxygen on Earth. They are the most important little organisms that most people never heard of! Although tiny, diatoms play an immense role in keeping the planet’s ecosystem working. They’re important mediators of carbon and oxygen cycles, an integral component of marine food webs and the principal cycles of silica, which constitutes 25% of the Earth’s crust. The workshop will show the general diatoms’ features (photosynthesis, aspects, colors…) and how we can cultivate them at home. In the second part I will present projects that illustrate the infinite and interesting possibilities of BioDesign.
