|Goal and objectives of the project
- Establish database of lipid of samples collected by the 6th research vessel Akademik Oparin in Vietnam’s oceans including: total lipid content, fatty acid composition, lipid composition classes.
|Novelty and actuality and scientific meaningfulness of the results
The project has conducted study on 16 marine organism samples collected during the 6th survey of research vessel Akademik Oparin on Vietnam coastal. Collected samples including 5 corals, 2 sponges, 2 mollusks, 2 starfishs, 1 sea cucumber, sea lily, 2 seaweeds. The samples were named to classify and preservation. Studied the lipid on all 16 samples results in the following data: total lipid content, composition and content of lipid classes, composition and content of fatty acids, total phospholipid content, composition and lipid classes, investigating the biological activity of lipid class of 16 marine organism samples. These are new data that will be added to the database of lipids of marine organisms in Vietnam.
