Microbial simulations bridge the gap between the molecular and ecosystem scales.
A new CBIOMES paper presents, for the first time, an interpretation of observed, strain-level, basin-scale biogeography using genome-scale modeling of cellular metabolism, physiology, and fitness. Continue reading A Systems Level Approach to Biogeography
According to CBIOMES researchers, predator interactions chiefly determine where Prochlorococcus thrive – a finding that may help researchers hone predictions for where phytoplankton will migrate with climate change. Continue reading Plankton’s Place
