Details

Are you interested in marine biology and the micro-organisms that sustain life on earth? The largest source of biodiversity is invisible to the naked eye. Tiny microbes account for 98% of ocean biomass and produce as much oxygen as all the trees on the planet. Join Scripps Researcher Bethany Kolody to delve into the secret and complex lives of ocean microbes to see how they respond to sunlight, communicate chemically, and even exchange genes with one another.

This special event is free and open to the public.
