Exciting research published!

Heather Kim (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) published a new modeling manuscript in the Journal of Biogeosciences.  Her manuscript titled “Modeling polar marine ecosystem functions guided by bacterial physiological and taxonomic traits.” She used a novel data assimilation numerical model to examine the dynamics between bacterial traits and ecosystem dynamics along the West Antarctic Peninsula.  The results under simulated perturbed climate conditions show a shift from low nucleic acid bacteria to high nucleic acid bacteria.
