  • Assimilatory sulfur metabolism in marine microorganisms 

    Cuhel, Russell Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-12)
    The reductive assimilation of sulfate into cellular organic sulfur compounds was studied in aerobic marine bacteria, with emphasis on the relationship between sulfur metabolism and protein synthesis. The goal of the ...
  • Biology and potential biogeochemical impacts of novel predatory flavobacteria 

    Banning, Erin C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
    Predatory bacteria are ubiquitous in aquatic environments and may be important players in the ecology and biogeochemistry of microbial communities. Three novel strains belonging to two genera of marine flavobacteria, ...
  • Exploring the distribution and physiological roles of bacterial membrane lipids in the marine environment 

    Saenz, James P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
    Lipids have a legacy in the geologic record extending back to the Archaean. Since the phylogenetic diversity of life is reflected in the structural diversity of biomolecules, lipid biomarkers that are shown to be diagnostic ...
  • Geobiology of marine magnetotactic bacteria 

    Simmons, Sheri L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-06)
    Magnetotactic bacteria (MTB) biomineralize intracellular membrane-bound crystals of magnetite (Fe3O4) or greigite (Fe3S4), and are abundant in the suboxic to anoxic zones of stratified marine environments worldwide. Their ...
  • Microbial size spectra from diverse marine ecosystems 

    Gin, Karina Y. H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)
    Characteristics of microbial size spectra (bacteria and phytoplankton) were examined in relation to changes in ecosystem productivity and environmental perturbations. Samples were obtained from productive coastal waters ...
  • Mutant analysis of luminescence and autoinduction in a marine bacterium 

    Kuo, Alan J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-12)
    The marine symbiotic bacterium Vibrio fischeri is striking for its ability both to emit light and to dramatically regulate light emission using a cell-to-cell signalling mechanism called autoinduction. The latter is ...
