As part of an early-career researcher series in mSystems, Durham was invited to write a commentary on marine microbial interactions. She outlines current research and future directions to examine microbial cooperation and metabolic exchange in the surface ocean. Check it out here!
Figure from mSystems commentary. Microbial metabolic networks in the surface ocean are examined through complementary field-based observations (top left), laboratory coculture systems (top right), and metabolic modeling approaches (bottom center). Figure illustration and design by Joana C. Carvalho.
