Research project: Quantifying Protein Catalysts in Marine Systems

Currently Active: 
Yes

Enzymes in marine systems catalyse biogeochemical cycles in marine systems.

Resource allocation to protein catalysts in Trichodesmium
Protein catalysts in Trichodesmium

In this project we are developing molecular methods to quantify the abundance of the major catalysts of the biological carbon and and nitrogen cycles in ocean systems. These techniques enable us to understand how these processes are regulated on oceanographic scales.
