Professor Greg Gibson Awarded a T32 Training Grant from the National Institute of General Medical Science
The sheer volume of cyanobacteria in the oceans makes them major players in the global carbon cycle and responsible for as much as a third of the carbon fixed. These photosynthetic microbes, which include Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus, are tiny – as many as 100 million cells can be found in a single liter of water – and yet they are not the most abundant entities on Earth. That distinction goes to viruses, up to 100 million of which can be found per 1 mL of seawater.

Dr. Marc Weissburg Professor of Biology, along with a team of multidisciplinary investigators have been awarded $2.5 million dollar grant to develop approaches for sustainable and resilient infrastructure. A key feature of the plan is to use, and compare, ecological and engineering approaches and principles for increasing cycling, reducing waste, and maintaining function in the face of perturbation. The team will examine complex interactions between infrastructure (e.g. water, transportation and energy systems) that traditionally have been ignored.
