Studying microorganisms (or microbes), which are found in the ocean waters, is a fascinating process that can reveal the hidden secrets about ocean chemistry, biology and climate. Marine microorganisms are exceedingly small, diverse in their forms and distributed across the ocean, which makes it so challenging to analyze them.
Still, marine microbiologists are searching for the answers that will help us to understand the ocean’s ecosystem and how it influences us. This is the focus of the research group of Dr. Sten Littman from Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology.
