Dr. Naomi Levine published a study in Science Advances introducing a new proteome allocation model to investigate the relationships between temperature, size and metabolism among marine phytoplankton. They applied the model to decipher the mechanisms behind both short-term (acclimation) and long-term (adaptation) responses, providing insights into the metabolic trade-offs that a cell faces while managing stress, space and energetic constraints. These results have implications for rates of carbon sequestration and export in a warmer ocean.
