attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String See Howard et al. (2010), Rinta-Kanto et al. (2011), and Vila-Coast et al.
(2010) for detailed methods, summarized below:

\"In October 2006, seawater was collected from surface waters (<1 m deep) in
the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Dauphin Island, AL (lat: 30 03.041N; lon:
87 59.708W). Water was filtered through a 200-um mesh into six 20-liter
polyethylene Cubitainers with minimal headspace.

Three microcosms were amended with 10 um sodium nitrate (NaNO3) and 0.6 um
potassium phosphate (K2HPO4) to serve as the experimental microcosms. Three
microcosms were left untreated to serve as the control. The Cubitainers were
maintained at 27 degrees C on a 12-hour light/dark cycle for the duration of
the experiment.

Chemical and activity measurements were collected from the microcosms at the
beginning of the experiment (Day 0) and every day for the duration of the
experiment at the same time. Bacterial production was measured by 3H-leucine
incorporation into trichloroacetic acid (TCA) -insoluble material. Incubations
were carried out in triplicate in the dark at in situ temperature with
additions of 20 nM of 3H-leucine for 4 hours, starting immediately after water
collection. One TCA-killed sample was used as a control. Samples were
processed by the microcentrifugation method. Bacterial sulfur requirements
were estimated through conversion of bacterial heterotrophic production
assuming a bacterial C/S molar ratio of 248.\"

attribute NC_GLOBAL project String En-Gen DMSP Cycling
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_acronym String En-Gen DMSP Cycling
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String The recent discovery of key genes that mediate competing pathways at a critical juncture in the marine sulfur cycle has allowed biogeochemists to make rapid advances in understanding where and when sulfur transformations occur in the ocean, and most importantly, what factors regulate them. This project describes an environmental functional genomics project that will rapidly increase our knowledge of the role that bacterioplankton play in dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) cycling in ocean surface waters, focusing particularly on biological controls of volatile sulfur exchange across the ocean/atmosphere boundary.
The investigators have asked three critical hypotheses to explain the regulation of bacterial DMSP degradation: that involve investigations on the energy constraints of DMSP cycling, the role that DMSP concentration in the oceans plays, and the sulfur requirements for bacterial growth. These research areas serve as the focus for hypothesis-driven laboratory and field studies using functional genomics approaches that will track patterns in gene expression in relation to sulfur metabolism. The hypotheses will be tested with:
1) chemostat systems with a model marine bacterium Silicibacter pomeroyi;
2) microcosm experiments with Gulf of Mexico seawater; and
3) field studies at various sites in the Gulf of Mexico. Marine bacterioplankton play a key role in regulating the flux of DMSP-derived sulfur to the atmosphere, a process of great importance for global climate regulation and marine productivity.
The investigators will also be involved in graduate and undergraduate student education, and two post-doctoral associates will be trained to address multidisciplinary challenges in environmental microbiology. High school biology students in Athens, GA will participate in marine microbial biology research that includes bacterial diversity and discovery studies in coastal Georgia, follow-up training in molecular tools and bioinformatics in their own classroom, and summer internships at the University of Georgia and Dauphin Island Sea Laboratory.
