Media opportunity: New framework developed by Dalhousie University researchers looks at the foundation of ocean ecosystems in a new way

Researchers at Dalhousie University, University of Liverpool, GEOMAR in Kiel, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography have come up with a new framework to look at phytoplankton growth in the ocean. Phytoplankton growth can be thought of like a factory: materials come into the factory and are processed on assembly lines, forming the final product. For phytoplankton, this product is growing faster, and they rearrange their "cellular assembly lines" to grow fast.
