July 2020 - July 2021
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: This collaborative project will work to characterize the mechanistic underpinnings of resource metabolism pathways in large marine phytoplankton, including Trichodesmium. This mechanistic understanding will then be used to examine how metabolic pathways are influenced by taxonomic composition, modulated over time, with depth, and in response to changes in the environment.
