Adelaida Arjona As we become more efficient at gathering information in the world, from shopping habits and most-searched-for vacation spots to satellites that can adjust for cloud cover, it follows that how we communicate and organize this information for general
Bri Groves Organisms are fascinated by light, but as the sun goes down, light is a rare commodity. To brighten the night, some organisms produce their own pseudo flashlights. These creatures are labelled as bioluminescent. Bioluminescence refers to an organism’s
Courtney Stuart I am a Research Experience for Undergraduates intern here at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. This summer, I have the privilege of working alongside Senior Research Scientist Douglas Rasher and Postdoctoral Fellow Matthew Suskiewicz. Our project focuses on
Emily Haggett How do you begin to study microbes that live in extreme conditions like hydrothermal vents in the deep sea, or hypersaline lakes in Antarctica? Even if you can collect them, what if you can’t grow them in culture?
Emily McDermith Ever wonder why you can smell the salty ocean breeze? The notorious salty smell of the seashore is caused by the compound dimethylsulfide (DMS). However, this salty smell isn’t produced to reminds us of sandy beaches and sunny
Garret Genco Have you ever noticed how metals that are left in water for an extended amount of time begin to form rust on their surface? In bodies of water, the production of rust on a non-living, inanimate object from
Josh Brycki When Bob Dylan released “The Times They Are a-Changin’” in 1964, it was middle of Civil Rights Movement, and social change was a major theme of the album (and song of the same name). The theme of change,
Patricia Montalvo Microbes are tiny, sneaky little organisms that can be found absolutely everywhere. Sometimes, I think that statement is repeated so many times, we actually forget how inclusive it is. There are microbes in the air, in our skin,
