Physiology

A main aim of PriME is to bridge the divide between bacterial physiology, at the scale of individual cells or communities, and ocean carbon dynamics, at the level of entire oceans.

We use quantitative physiology approaches to understand how marine bacteria metabolize carbon in multi-species communities; their responses to fluctuations in resource abundance and strategies to allocate limiting intracellular resources, to name a few.

These findings represent not only key contributions to microbiology, but also serve to inform new models of species interactions in communities and carbon transport in the water column
