New publication in Limnology and Oceanography!

April 23, 2018

Our new publication led by former graduate student Natalie Cohen (now a post-doctoral fellow at WHOI) was just published in Limnology and Oceanography. In this study we examine the iron quotas of 11 diatoms to determine whether there is a systematic difference in iron storage capacities between diatoms that contain the protein ferritin and those that do not. It appears that ferritin may be performing multiple functional roles that are independent of diatom phylogeny.
