Cyanobacteria

Paper on the global distribution of Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus published in PNAS

Hi - our paper describing the global distribution of Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus is finally out in PNAS. 7 years of work! Among others, Pedro, the two Jose's, Rodolfo, Jasper from C. Engineering and myself are authors. I encourage you all to read it.

Marine bacteria

The main objectives of our research is to (1) understand how bacteria adapt to different environmental conditions and (2) how the resulting diversity influences global biogeochemical cycles. Most of the work is done on the unicellular marine cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus, but we are also interested in other organisms. The goal is to understand the relationship between variation in the physical environment, genome composition, and phylogeny - and how that all ties to together in shaping biogeochemical cycles.
