Dr. Erik Pelve on the characterization of single cells from marine bacteria
In a nutrient-starved ocean, sinking particles are an ideal spot for microbial activity than the surrounding water, as they are composed of a higher cell count and larger, more active cells. On March 19, Dr. Erik Pelve, CEE postdoctoral fellow, presented a seminar entitled “Genomic characterization of single cells from marine bacteria associated with sinking particles” in the Environmental Science Seminar Series (ESSS). In Pelve’s seminar, he discussed the use of cultivation free techniques to reveal identity, genomic features and ecological function of single cells from four particle-associated bacterial genera.
