Research project: Light regulation of amino acid uptake in marine cyanobacteria

Currently Active: 

Details are given below.

Planktonic prokaryotes such as Prochlorococcus are the most numerous and biogeochemically important organisms of the open ocean.

One key to their success is the ability to take up organic nitrogen in the form of amino acids. This process is regulated by light and we are currently exploring the mechanisms underlying this process in collaboration with Professor Mike Zubkov at the National Oceanography Centre at Southampton and Professor David Scanlan (University of Warwick).
