Corina Ițcuș

Research Scientist III - Arctic and Antarctic Research


My expertise is related to the structural and functional diversity of extremophilic microorganisms and their applied study through ecological and phylogenetic analyses using methods of genetics and molecular biology.

Through my research I track the genetic diversity and dynamics of the microbiome in the environment with a focus on the composition of aquatic, polar glacial and alpine environments. The dominant studies are focused on the regulation of biodiversity and the adaptability of microbial communities to external stress factors in order to use strains of interest in the field of nanotechnology regarding potential bionanotechnological applications of microorganisms.
