Mapping of Baltic Sea microorganisms will create models for climate changes

Published: 2014-02-28


Although we know that sea microorganisms play an important role for marine life our knowledge about them has been very limited until recently. In a large scale mapping of the Baltic Sea, researchers from Stockholm University and SciLifeLab have now identified 22 million genes in viruses, bacteria and plankton.
