  • 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, ...
  • Diversity and dynamics of a North Atlantic coastal Vibrio community 

    Thompson, Janelle R.; Randa, Mark A.; Marcelino, Luisa A.; Tomita-Mitchell, Aoy; Lim, Ee Lin; Polz, Martin F. (American Society for Microbiology, 2004-07)
    Vibrios are ubiquitous marine bacteria that have long served as models for heterotrophic processes and have received renewed attention because of the discovery of increasing numbers of facultatively pathogenic strains. ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
