Some species of marine phytoplankton, such as the prolific bloomer Emiliania huxleyi, can grow without consuming vitamin B1 (thiamine), researchers have discovered.

Carbon-sequestering Ocean Plants May Handle Climate Changes Over The Long Run

A year-long experiment on tiny ocean organisms called coccolithophores suggests that the single-celled algae may still be able to grow their calcified shells even as oceans grow warmer and more acidic in Earth's near future.

Ehux Algae Adapts With Variable Genome

Researchers have sequenced the genome of Emiliania huxleyi ("Ehux"), a species of single-celled photosynthetic marine algae that they say is responsible for removing carbon dioxide from the air, supplying the oxygen we breath, and even forming the basis of marine food chains.

Researchers Uncover Genetic Payload Of Ancient Plankton In Black Sea Sediments

Sorting through the vast amounts of genetic data from the Black Sea sediment record, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) marine paleoecologist Marco Coolen was astounded by the variety of past plankton species that left behind their genetic makeup.

Marine scientists have long understood the detrimental effect of fossil fuel emissions on marine ecosystems.

Ancient And Modern Tiny Marine Algae Provide Climate Change Clues

Coccolithovirus, a giant double-stranded DNA virus, infects Emiliania huxleyi, a species of coccolithophore. The virus was first observed in 1999 by W.H. Wilson and his team at the Marine Biological Association. It was sequenced for the EhV-86 strain during the summer of 2005, and was found to be a "giant-virus" having 472 protein-coding genes. It is the largest known marine virus by genome.
