Though tiny, marine microbes are one hundred times more abundant in the ocean than there are stars in the galaxy. They play critical roles in converting carbon dioxide to organic matter and in regulating nutrient cycling, Without healthy functioning microbial communities, we would not have any air to breath, fish to eat or oil to burn. We use cutting edge molecular biology tools to monitor the structure and function of microbial communities in the worlds oceans.
