Dissolved organic matter and microbial diversity

In support of identifying dissolved organic compounds produced by one group of marine microbes (photoautotrophs) and consumed by other groups of marine microbes (heterotrophs) to better understand the links between marine microbial diversity, metabolism, and biogeochemical cycles. Dissolved organic compounds from controlled laboratory culture experiments will provide proof of concept and support for later environmental field sample compound identification with the ultimate goal of linking dissolved organic material composition to marine microbial metabolism and diversity in the environment.
