Johnson defends his M.Sc. thesis!

November 17, 2021

Congratulations to Johnson Lin who defended his M.Sc. thesis titled ‘Variability in the phytoplankton response to upwelling across the iron limitation mosaic within the California Current System’, Johnson performed nutrient uptake rates, flow cytometry and gene expression analysis to investigate how phytoplankton respond to simulated upwelling under varying iron physiological states.  Turns out some diatoms are just more well-suited to coping with change than others.
