Two Co-Workers left for Polarstern trip (Cape Town, South Africa) (December 2011)
Two of our Co-workers join the 'Polarstern', a research and supply vessel, for four weeks in order to collect samples in antarctic waters.
|The cruise starts on 3 December 2011 and ends again in Cape Town on 5 January 2012. The main working stations are located along the route from Cape Town to the German Neumayer Station on the Antarctic self ice. Our Co-workers are interested in the abundance and growth of bacteria of the Roseobacter clade as well as their influence on the dissolved organic matter (DOM).|
Bacteria of the Roseobacter clade play a prominent role in the Southern Ocean. The goal of the project is a comprehensive assessment of the Roseobacter clade and its major bacterioplancton subclusters in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean. This project is part of a key work package of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center Ecology, Physiology and Molecular Biology of the Roseobacter clade: Towards a Systems Biology Understanding of a Globally Important Clade of Marine Bacteria (TRR 51).
