Bacteria

A collection of marine Bacteria

 

We are interested in quantifying how many different bacteria are present and active in the different mesocosms. We will use a number of different techniques to find this out, including flow cytometry to measure cell abundances, DNA and RNA techniques. We will be looking at how much biomass they produce, how active they are (by looking at extracellular enzyme activity, uptake rates of glucuse and leucine, respiration, and phosphatase activity).
