Congratulations to Alice Lie who was awarded a Travel Stipend for her poster presentation at ASLO 2017 featuring our Trilogy Laboratory Fluorometer.

::Presentation Overview::

  • Phagotrophic phytoflagellates are mixotrophic algae that can obtain carbon and energy through both photosynthesis and phagotrophy (bacterivory).
  • There is a spectrum of mixotrophic strategies ranging from predominantly phototrophic to predominantly phagotrophic.
  • Knowledge of different nutritional strategies and metabolism of mixotrophs will enable a better understanding of the functional roles of mixotrophs in communities.
  • Ochromonas is a genus of mixotrophic chrysophytes. Many species are predominantly bacterivores, but Ochromonas sp. strain CCMP1393 is obligately phototrophic.
  • This study investigates the gene expression of Ochromonas sp. strain CCMP1393 under different light regimes and bacteria availability.
