Join a team of scientists in Antarctica as they study the molecular biology, and evolution of microscopic organisms. Currently working at Palmer Station, Antarctica, Joseph Grzymski and his colleagues are investigating how the Antarctic marine phytoplankton evolves, adapts functions from a cold dark winter to a warmer, brighter spring. The National Science Foundation is sponsoring the project titled "Collaborative Research: Functional Genomics and Physiological Ecology of Seasonal Succession in Antarctic Phytoplankton: Adaptations to Light and Temperature."
As part of the project mission Grzymski is interacting with middle school students from Sparks, Nev. Find out more and participate in the educational activities.
