MEES684
Marine Microbial Ecology
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud, S-F
The primary goal of this course is to become familiar with the diversity, ecology, and biogeochemical roles of Bacteria, Archaea, microbial Eukaryotes, viruses, and fungi in the marine environment. The course will also cover the latest discoveries in molecular microbial ecology. Each main topic will begin with a lecture and will be followed by a paper discussion. For the paper discussions, each student will present selected papers specified in the syllabus (or by consensus with the course instructors). Students will also participate in class discussions.
Taught over the Interactive Video Network (IVN).
