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
Look out for the Darwin team, sharing their work at this year’s Ocean Sciences conference taking place February 16-21 in San Diego, California.

Reporting by Helen Hill for CBIOMES
CBIOMES postdoctoral fellow John Casey is a Microbial Oceanographer who combines observations, experimental approaches, and computational methods to better understand the diversity of metabolic and physiological designs that influence biogeochemical cycles.

A new study led by Samuel T. Wilson from the University of Hawai’i, co-authored with Darwin Project researchers John Casey, Stephanie Dutkiewicz, Mick Follows, Christopher Hill, and Oliver Jahn, uses the Darwin ecosystem model embedded within an MITgcm (~2 km) resolution regional physical model of the North Pacific Ocean to study how the input of silicic acid, iron, nitrate, and phosphate along the southeast coast of Hawai‘i impacts nearby phytoplankton productivity.
