The transition from unicellular eukaryotes to multicellular animals is arguably among the most profound evolutionary transitions in the history of life. The overall aim of this project is to understand which genetic and developmental mechanisms that made this transition possible.
The aim of this project is to reveal the diversity and seasonal dynamics of small eukaryotes from Norwegian coastal waters.
Biological production and consumption of CO2 in ocean surface waters is essential for understanding ocean-atmosphere inreaction. Small microorganisms can have a great impact on the biosphere and understanding their influence is of great importance with respect to increasing CO2-levels in the atmospehere.
