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. Understanding of how microbes are distributed in the sea can hopefully be used to provide future models for climate changes.
