Andrew E. Allen is a joint professor of microbial oceanography and ecology in both the Integrative Oceanography Division at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, and the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI). He received his Ph.D. in ecology from the University of Georgia and after several years as a postdoctoral scholar at Princeton University and at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France, he joined the faculty at JCVI 2007. In 2013 he assumed a faculty position at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego. Current research interests in the Allen lab are related to eukaryotic phytoplankton interactions with bacteria and other microbes and associated cellular defense, resistance and interaction mechanisms. In PriME, the emergent chemical and biological connections in a suite of up to four model phytoplankton systems, including ecologically dominant and emerging model taxa, will be explored.
