Collective sinking promotes selective cell pairing in planktonic pennate diatoms

Finding a partner in an inherently unsteady 3-dimensional system, such as the planktonic marine environment, is a difficult task for nonswimming organisms with poor control over their location...

Advection by ocean currents modifies phytoplankton size structure

Phytoplankton size structure plays a fundamental role in marine ecosystems. It responds to environmental conditions while controlling the biogeochemical cycling of many elements, through carbon fixation and phosphorous exportation...

 Light control of localized photo-bioconvection

Microorganismal motility is often characterised by complex responses to environmental physico- chemical stimuli. Here we leverage the phototactic ability of the model microalga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to precisely control the timing and position of localised cell photo-accumulation...

 Chlamydomonas Swims With Two `Gears' in a Eukaryotic Version of Run-and-Tumble Locomotion. 

One of the most remarkable and pervasive feats in the microscopic world is the coordination of flagella, the slender, whiplike structures that protrude from many types of cells...
