The Marine Microbiomics Lab
The oceans are home to some of the most unique, abundant and unexplored microbes on Earth. Every milliliter of seawater contains on average 1000 phytoplankton cells, one million bacteria and 10 million viruses! These organisms respond to their environment and interact with each other to influence major global physical, chemical and biological processes. Our lab is interested in studying how these organisms interact with each other and how these interactions influence their ecosystem, from coral health to algal blooms to bioprospecting.
Phytoplankton-Bacteria Symbiosis in Today’s Oceans:
Our goal is to understand how the microbiome of phytoplankton influences their adaptation to environmental conditions, such as nutrient limitation and climate change.
