Lab of Alexandra Z. Worden, PhD

This grant to the University of Miami supports research in the laboratory of Dr. Worden into marine microbial population dynamics and carbon cycling in marine ecosystems. Researchers will explore biochemical and molecular mechanisms of microbe-algae interactions and study microbial predator-prey interactions. Outcomes for this grant include description of microbial predation, explanation of the biochemistry of microbe-algae interactions, connection of microbial competition to population dynamics, delineation of competition processes and population dynamics within marine food webs, and annotation of the (green alga) Ostreococcus tauri genome.
