It's humpback🐋 season but the only one I've seen so far this year was a glimpse from a plane last week.

Calm mornings are a good time to see them though.

Daily turnover of active giant virus infection during algal blooms revealed by single-cell transcriptomics

"A consistent percent of infected coccolithophores displayed the early phase of viral replication for several consecutive days, indicating a daily turnover and continuous virocell-associated metabolite production, potentially affecting the surrounding microbiome"

Happy to share our latest paper, in which we examined the timing at which different microbial groups colonized the ocean!

The first author (Carolina Martinez) is starting her lab at UC Santa Barbara in 2024 and is looking to recruit postdocs and PhD students, so if this looks interesting to you, please reach out to her!

Marine #microorganisms are crucial for #ocean health.

#Bacteria, #archaea, #fungi, #algae and #viruses make up most of the biomass in the seas and form the base of marine food webs.

They support nutrient cycling and drive crucial biogeochemical processes, including key steps in the carbon, nitrogen and silicon cycles.

Ocean modelling must evolve to take their biological complexity into account.

I'm in Appledore in Devon, to give a talk later about Blue Machine and I've just discovered that they have a KNITTED OCEAN outside their church. And this is the Best Thing Ever.

Hoping to see some new #science folks exploring Mastodon so figured it’s time for another #introduction - I’m Mya, a professor at the University of South Florida College of Marine Science. Our lab studies #microbes (bacteria, viruses, protists) in the oceans and other environments and also works on #fish egg identification. I also post about my cute dog and cat a lot! #USFCMS #ocean #marine #oceanography #microbiology #virology #research #seagrass #urchin #academia


Teamwork makes the dream work - another amazing week of sea #urchin and #coral experiments #USFCMS #Science #ocean #reef


Happy to share a collaborative preprint with Assaf Vardi's group in which we use single cell transcriptomics to link giant viruses with their native hosts during a marine algal bloom!

This approach is quite sensitive - we were able to identify viruses infecting one protist group that made up <0.5% of the community.

My first "reviewed preprint" on @eLife !

A Timeline of Bacterial and Archaeal Diversification in the Ocean

https://elifesciences.org/reviewed-preprints/88268

Lots of hard work from former PhD student in my lab Carolina Martinez. Part of a collaboration with @pseudacris

We are enjoying the new process so far and working on revisions to address some of the concerns raised by reviewers.

Hello from RV #atlantic in the South #Atlantic #Ocean ! We’ve been sailing a week already but I haven’t got around to posting anything before now. Here’s the beautiful ending of a pre-dawn multinet cast this morning to collect #plankton and other particles from the upper kilometre of the water column


Wonderful essay by @vincentflora and Assaf Vardi on viruses in the ocean

Viral infection in the ocean—A journey across scales

"Aquatic virology tackles some of the most challenging questions in microbial ecology and oceanography, trying to understand how microorganisms that are invisible to the naked eye can influence large-scale processes, such as biogeochemical cycles, or affect entire marine food webs."

Viruses are the most abundant biological entity in the #ocean. In this #PLOSBiology Essay, @vincentflora @vardilab discuss interactions between hosts and #viruses in the ocean and their relevance for global ocean ecosystem function in a changing climate.
