Senior Research Scientist Francois Ribalet and his team use underway flow cytometry to collect information about the abundance and size of small phytoplankton in the surface ocean. In a new paper published in the journal Scientific Data Ribalet, together with others from the UW-CBIOMES team and elsewhere, share their compilation of Northeast Pacific Ocean underway flow cytometry data collected over the past decade.

Members of the USC-CBIOMES Group J. Cesar Ignacio-Espinoza, and Jed A. Fuhrman, have found that the endless struggle between viruses and bacteria ends in a stalemate, scientific proof of the evolutionary principle known as the “Red Queen.”
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.
