  • 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 ...
  • Ecology and population structure of Vibrionaceae in the coastal ocean 

    Preheim, Sarah P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
    Extensive genetic diversity has been discovered in the microbial world, yet mechanisms that shape and maintain this diversity remain poorly understood. This thesis investigates to what extent populations of the ...
  • Insights into vitamin B12 production, acquisition, and use by marine microbes 

    Bertrand, Erin M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-02)
    The distribution and magnitude of marine primary production helps determine the ocean's role in global carbon cycling. Constraining factors that impact this productivity and elucidating selective pressures that drive the ...
  • Molecular biogeochemistry of modern and ancient marine microbes 

    Waldbauer, Jacob R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
    Biological activity has shaped the surface of the earth in numerous ways, but life’s most pervasive and persistent global impact has been the secular oxidation of the surface environment. Through primary production – the ...
