MATTHEW SULLIVAN (The Ohio State University, Columbus, USA)

will give a seminar with the title: 

"Ocean viruses: Re-imagining patterns, processes and paradigms in the global oceans"

Hörsaal

Microbes are recently recognized as driving the energy and nutrient transformations that fuel Earth’s ecosystems in soils, oceans and humans. Where studied, viruses appear to modulate these microbial impacts in ways ranging from mortality and nutrient recycling to complete metabolic reprogramming during infection. I will share insights from the Tara Oceans global oceanographic research expedition which help establish ocean viruses as key players in the ocean ecosystem — globally.
