Ocean Sampling Update

Last week I met with Andy Allen from the Venter Institute. Andy updated me on some of the results of our ocean sampling program from my boat Solutions.

Some of you may recall that we have been taking samples from my boat for some time. We met for lunch in Coronado and reviewed some interesting results. I’m glad to see that this work is paying off.

The work has led to an article published in Nature, titled “Evolution and metabolic significance of the urea cycle in photosynthetic diatoms.” I look forward to further progress on the part of the research team, and future sampling trips on Solutions.
