This grant to the Oregon State University supports research conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Giovannoni—a recognized expert on the cultivation of marine microbes from the natural ocean environment. Dr. Giovannoni and his team successfully cultured SAR 11, an elusive bacterial group now called Pelagibacter ubique, which are some of the smallest (billions fit into a teaspoon) and most abundant organisms on Earth. Outcomes for this grant include improved marine microbe lab culture success and the description of Pelagibacter nutrient limiting factors and proteomics.
