Ubiquitous marine organism has co-evolved with other microbes, promoting more complex ecosystems. Continue reading
Winners and Losers: Phytoplankton in a Changing Climate
Stephanie Dutkiewicz at MIT Future Ocean Symposium, September 9, 2013.
When San Francisco’s Exploratorium moves into its new building on the waterfront next year, it promises to use technologies in ways never before seen in a museum. One of those experiences will be an interactive ocean, the product of a collaboration between scientists at UC Davis and MIT’s Darwin Project. Read more
In this video, which grew out of a Plenary Lecture at the Spring 2012, American Geophysical Union, Ocean Sciences meeting in Salt Lake City ,UT, “Modeling Marine Microbes: From Molecules to Ecosystems”, Mick talks about the past, present and future of marine ecosystem modeling. In particular he explains how his group uses numerical simulations to understand the organization of plankton populations and how advances in cell biology and microbiology might inform future models.
Take a look at this short student documentary by Helen Hou. The movie features MIT graduate students Andrew Barton and Sophie Clayton talking about the Darwin project.
