 The golden algae (haptophyte and heterokont lineages) contain the largest and smallest photosythetic organisms with distinct chloroplasts, produce >25% of the available oxygen in the atmosphere, and are the exclusive producers of essential fatty acids required for human health.  Yet most are unaware of this

group and do not understand their importance. While our lab is

biased towards the diatoms, we pursue questions involving all member of the group in every aspect of their biology.  This includes basic theoretical questions regarding classification, systematics, and ecology to more applied investigations working to bioprospect and exploit valuable attributes expressed in this organismal collection.
