This first presentation was "Identification and quantification of polyphenols in microalgae. Involvement of these compounds in the oxidative stress resistance", the PhD research of Idaira Jerez Martel about how some organic compounds, such as phenolic compounds, are involved in defense mechanisms against oxidative stress caused by high concentrations of metals.
