A few weeks ago I was interviewed by the high school journal Word about my work as a researcher. We brought some plankton nets and went sampling in Fyrisån as well as some ponds on campus. Due to the late season we didn’t find much, … Continue readingInterview for the High School journal Word
Me and my family came back to Sweden in the end of June. There were with mixed feelings we left US, where a lot will be missed, but where we also welcome being close to family and friends again. We have now moved to Uppsala, … Continue readingBack in Sweden
It all started on ASLO 2018 as a discussion after one of the presentations and now its a paper! Hopefully you will find it as interesting as we think this concept of cryptic constituents in aquatic ecosystems is. We give several examples of carbon and … Continue readingNew paper out

We have a new publication out on plankton diversity in he Arctic, using an almos 20 year old dataset. Link here.
We are currently running the third temperature experiment in a year. This time we use an axenic strain of the coccolithophore Emilinia huxleyi and we grow it in three different temperatures; 15, 20, and 28°C. We will look at metabolites and gene expressions of the … Continue readingThe third temperature experiment
Wonderful Magnolia trees are in full bloom now and along with fall the most pleasant season here in Athens (GA, US).
We examined endometabolite production and transfer to surrounding bacteria by the cyanobacteria Synechococcus growing under three different temperatures; 20°C, 24°C, and 28°C. They all grew perfectly and were nice and pink at harvest in late exponential growth phase. We sampled for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) … Continue readingSynechococcus experiment
We have been growing the cyanobacteria Synechococcus at three different temperatures (20, 24, and 28°C) for many weeks now, tracking growth and planning for un upcoming experiment. Look at the picture and you will know where it grows fastest… So we now have three sets … Continue readingAdapting Synechococcus to different temperatures
We recently traveled along the Gulf Coast over the Thanksgiving holidays and the kids accidentally brought back a little friend. It is now called Bella and lives in a tank in our house. The kids are happy about their new pet and hopefully it want … Continue readingAn unexpected guest
