Research cruise visits deep-sea hot vents

26.05.2016

Fool's gold and deep-sea teamwork
Almost every day now, ROV Marum-Quest drops exciting samples on board. First results show an exciting, so far unknown cooperation between the bacterial tenants of deep-sea mussels. And there's also some eye candy, as the ROV delivers the broken-off chimney of a black smoker.

An international research team around director Nicole Dubilier are on their way to investigate the life around hydrothermal vents on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. A videoblog provides exciting details from board. [more]

IDEFIX on Rope Yarn Sunday!
While on board napkins are being folded for the traditinal Rope Yarn Sunday, our ROV-pilots are top-performing during the first deployment of the novel IDEFIX-system that allows fixation of samples on the seafloor.

Bacterial Individualism: A Survival Strategy for Hard Times

11.05.2016

No two bacteria are identical – even when they are genetically the same. A new study reveals the conditions under which bacteria become individualists and how they help their group grow when times get tough. [more]

Research cruise visits deep-sea hot vents

High versus low fidelity in symbiotic relationships: Some bacteria have it both ways

09.03.2016

If your favourite pub moves – would you move too or look for another pub? For bacteria living in symbiosis with marine worms it all depends on whether they sit outside or inside the pub. Scientifically speaking: bacteria living on the body surface of their hosts are loyal to those, while bacteria living inside their hosts prefer to stay local, as scientists from Bremen now reveal.
