Blog Post Image: Scientists Apply Biomedical Technique to Reveal Changes Within the Body of the Ocean

From Samoa to Hawaii, environmental conditions vary from regions with low nitrogen and phosphorus levels, to regions with low iron levels, and regions low in all three nutrients. In between, the researchers observed zones where conditions transitioned. Proteins identified and measured by scientists in these regions indicated how microbes adapted their biochemical machinery to negotiate different conditions in different places.
